U.S. States: Louisiana: Grant County
I am doing research on a SMITH family from Lincoln and/or Franklin County MS. Joseph Pink SERMAN(S) with his wife CHARITY SMITH and several children moved from Mississippi to Grant parish (county) about 1870. CHARITY was born 17 January 1834, died 17 December 1916, buried Friendship Cemetery in Fishville, LA. Pink Serman(s) was born 23 June 1826, died 12 Oct 1912, also buried Friendship Cemetery. They were married in Franklin County MS 10 Jan 1858. Re 1880 Grant parish census they had 7 children: MARY,f,16; JOHN,m,14; MINERVA,f,12; JOSEPHINE,f,10 all born in MS; C.C.,m,8; E.P.,f,3; NANCY,f,4/12 ,these 3 born in LA. Were there older children born the first 5 years of their marriage?
I have sketchy information on the children's families, but not enough to put together. Any and all help will be appreciated.
I will gladly share the information I have.
