Marguerite Jane Ramey was born 8 Apr 1849 (I believe) in South Carolina. She married William David Davenport about 1870. Marguerite died 16 Jun 1919 in Chattanooga, Hamilton, Tennessee and was buried in McFarland Cemetery on 17 Jun 1919. Marguerite married William David Davenport abt 1870. William David Davenport was born 16 Apr 1849 in North Carolina and died 8 Nov 1938 in Walker County, Georgia. He's buried in the Dug Gap Cemetery in Dalton, Whitfield, Georgia.

Their children:
1. Talitha T. born abt 1871 in Georgia.
2. Rebecca A. born abt 1873 in North Carolina and died before October 1966.
3. Elsie Suzanne Elizabeth "Annie" born 1 Aug 1877 in Georgia and died 7 Jun 1962 in Walker County, Georgia. She married Jehu C "Jake" Morrison.
4. William Julius born 14 Aug 1879 in Georgia and died 21 Jan 1969 in Ore City, Upshur, Texas. He married Sally Jane Richardson.
5. Martha Lucretia "Crete" born 4 Jul 1881 in Dalton, Whitfield, Georgia and died 15 Oct 1966 in Chattanooga, Hamilton, Tennessee. She married Walter Sisk.
6. John E born Apr 1883 and died after Oct. 1966.
7. Thomas Wesley born 28 May 1887 in Georgia and died 14 Feb 1966 in Tennessee.
8. Nancy L "Nora" born 28 May 1889 in Georgia and died Aug 1961. She married Alfred H. Morrison on 20 Dec 1905 in Walker County, Georgia.
9. Clara Alma born 13 Jul 1891 in Whitfield County, Georgia and died 22 Dec 1969. She married #1 William Johnson abt 1907; #2 Roscoe Massey bet 1911-1919; and #3 Richard Alexander Monds 1919.

Marguerite was also known as Margaret (and other various spellings... Margarett, Margret).

I found Margarett Ramey on the 1860 census in Pickens, South Carolina. Her age is right and I'd like to know if this is her family. Unfortunately, I cannot find this family in 1850 or 1870. These are the names from the 1860 census:
**Caroline Ramey, head, 44, SC (no indication if she's a widow.
* Mary A Ramey, 17, SC
* James W, 15, SC, farm laborer
* Rebecca C, 14, SC
* David, 13, SC
* Margarett, 11, SC (Her name has been spelled this way a few times.)
* Susan, 9, SC
* Joel, 7, SC
* Jonah, 5, SC

If Caroline is her mom, what's her maiden name? What's her father's name?
