Sibert Family Genealogy Forum
I need help figuring out the mother of my great-grandmother, Laura Frances Bailey (1861-1936) who lived in Warren County, Virginia. For years, I have believed her to be the daughter of Mary Elizabeth Sibert, daughter of Catherine Sibert (1814- aft. 1894). However, I have recently seen positive proof that Mary Elizabeth died in 1855 of typhoid fever. The name Mary Sibert appears on my g-grandmother's marriage certificate as the mother. In the 1880 census Catherine Sibert is the head of household with her daughter Jane (Vienna Jane) Sibert and Laura Sibert. No relationship is listed for Laura, so I don't know if this is Catherine's granddaughter,niece, or what. I can't find Laura Sibert listed in the 1870 census. I have checked a book on births in Warren County that covers the time period in which she was born, but she is not listed there either so evidently she was born in a different county. If I had to guess, I would say Shenandoah because Catherine's ancestors originally lived in the Fort Valley section of Shenandoah County, close to the Warren County line.
Does anyone out there have any ideas?
