I am trying to find more information about my great grandfather’s, William Alex FOXWORTH, sister Sarah J. FOXWORTH. Here is what I know:
From a Clarke County, MS Marriage Bond:
That we, W. A. WILLIAMS and (Miss Sarah J. FOXWORTH is crossed out) Carley BAGGETT ... Bound for 200 dollars... marriage shortly to be celebrated between the above bound W. A. WILLIAMS and Miss Sarah J. FOXWORTH.
Signed W. A. WILLIAMS and Signed Carly BAGGETT.
Dated 12 DEC 1879
The marriage return is Dated 16 DEC 1879 for the actual marriage date.

In JUN of 1880, Sarah FOXWORTH is living with her stepfather Agenton FARMER and her marriage status is blank.

In 1900, Gus FARMER (Agenton's son) is living next to a Henry BAGGETT family, and Gus FARMER has a boarder named Betsy BAGGETT living in his household. I don't know if these BAGGETTs are related to the Clarke County group.
How do the BAGGETTs connect if other than friends with the FARMERs/FOXWORTHs?

Does anyone have any information at all on W.A. WILLIAMS or Carly BAGGETT? Parents, siblings, relationship to each other? What W. A. stands for, if not initials only??

I have a bit more info on Sarah from 2 previous censuses, but these are the last records I can find for her.

I would be very happy to hear from anyone who has WILLIAMS or BAGGETTs in the Clarke County, MS area.

I have more information on the FOXWORTHs and FARMERs if anyone thinks they have a connection.
Thank you for any help,
