Ideas on finding death of Charlotte Pollard Dove
Posted by: Jessie Hamill Fondy (ID *****7221) Date: May 11, 2011 at 00:32:02

My great-great-grandmother Charlotte Pollard was born in Mississippi or Louisiana in 1828; she married Thomas Sibley Dove ca. 1848 in Louisiana. After the Civil War, the family, consisting of three sons and five daughters, moved on to south central Texas, coming through (or from) Sabine Parish. They left Louisiana after TSDove was released from POW camp in Mississippi. I do not know whether Charlotte came to Texas with them, as I have not seen her mentioned on any record for the family in Texas. She was not on the 1870 federal census in Madison Co., Texas. TSD had remarried by that time (1869), but I have found a photo in my grandmother's photo album (not identified, naturally) that looks like my grandmother but I believe it to be her grandmother Charlotte Pollard Dove. The photo had to have been made after 1900 because it was printed on the back of a postcard, proven to have been used between 1900-1907.

If you can help me with ideas of where to look, etc., please contact me. I would be grateful for a kindness that I cannot repay, but would try at your suggestion.
