Lynn: Perhaps we can help each other on the Wiley Leggett family. I am mostly working on the Sikes (Sykes) families from Webster Parish Louisiana and I must admit I am about to pull my hair out on the Wiley Leggett and Sikes families connection. Information on Wiley S Leggett says that that Wiley Leggett's first wife was Susan Allen and he married Lyddora Sheffield after Susan's death. The connection with the Sikes family that I mentioned was that one of his daughter's Sarah M Leggett who married Jesse Franklin Sikes in Claiborne Parish Louisiana in 1868. I have a copy of the marriage license. Please understand that neither of these two families are my family. I am doing research for a descendent of Jesse F. Sikes and Sarah Leggett. Now the problem is that Sarah (or Sallie) Sikes is said to have been born in 1849 in GA and to have died October 10, 1935 here in Webster Parish Louisiana. There is no legal (such as a death certificate or any other proof of her death. She is seen in several legal records with Jesse Sikes. If she died in 1935 she would have to have been about 86 years old. Her husband Jesse died in 1923 proven by his death certificate. She is known to have been alive after his death. Do you have any suggestions? Bobbie in Louisiana
