Matilda or Liddia Jones is my 3rd great grandmother. I don't know if Matilda or Liddia is her first name because she has gone by both names on different records. I don't know who her parents are. She was born 22 Nov 1843 in Buncombe,North Carolina. She died 3 Jan 1913 in Asheville,Buncombe,North Carolina. She was married twice. Her first husband was David Daughtery Legg. They were married on 8 Aug 1861 in Gilmer,Georgia. David died 6 Aug 1862 in Richmon,Virginia during the Civil War. As far as I can tell there were no children from this marriage. Her second husband was William Sharp(my 3rd great grandfather) They were married on 25 Dec 1865 in Gilmer,Georgia. He was born 8 May 1839 in Buncombe,North Carolina. He died 6 Oct 1909 in Asheville,Buncombe,North Carolina. They had 8 children: John W H Sharp(1867-Before 1880) Harriet Elizabeth"Hattie" Sharp(1869-1923) Robert Robertson Sharp(1872-1937) Ida Telesta Sharp(1874-1934) Harly P Sharp(1878-?) Charly B Sharp(1880-?) Edward Waco Sharp(1881-1961) Marguerite Augusta"Maggie" Sharp(1885-1962) I know her father's name is John Jones. There are two families that could be hers. But I don't know which family. I hope someone can help me solve this brickwall. The first family is:
Father: John Jones(1813 North Carolina)
Mother: Willia or Willie Holloman or Hollaman(1819 North Carolina)
Brother: William Henry Jones(1842 North Carolina)
Sister: Mary Jones(1845 North Carolina)
Sister: Elizabeth Jones(1847 North Carolina
Brother: John Jones(1849 North Carolina)
She is listed as Lydia Jones on the 1850 Census with the above family. She's listed as Ledia Jones on the 1860 Census with the above family. The second family is:
Father: John W Jones(1812 North Carolina)
Mother: Harriet Jones(1822 North Carolina)
Brother: Thomas Jones(1840 North Carolina)
Sister: Mary Jane Jones(1841 North Carolina)
Brother: John W Jones(1848 North Carolina)
Sister: Charity Jones(1850 North Carolina)
Brother: Henry Sylvester Jones(1852 North Carolina)
Brother: Adolphus Millard"Bud" Jones(1856 North Caroloina)
Brother: James Jones(1860 North Carolina)
I can only find her on the 1860 Census with the above family and she's listed as Matilda Jones.
Can someone please help me to figure this out please? Thank you.
