Smith-Whiddon-Cooper-Merck
Posted by: Satia52 Date: October 28, 2001 at 09:05:07
  of 21

Mae M. or Minnie M. ( SMITH or COOPER ) b. abt. 1882 Tx. married Cornelius Smith in 1901 . Mae M. gives her maiden name as SMITH on marriage license and is listed as Minnie M. SMITH on 1900 census in Edwards co., Tx. as an orphan in the household of Cornelius SMITH . By family legend her maiden name is COOPER but I have serious doubts.
Cornelius and Mae M. Smith had a daughter , Minnie Florence Smith that was orphaned at about age 9 and raised by a Whiddon family in Sutton Co.,Tex.
On a Whiddon family group sheet , it list Minnie F. Smith as a foster child of W.L. Whiddon . Notes say that Laura was Aunt Minnie's mother's name and that Josie Wall said she was Aunt Minnie's half sister . This cannot be correct as Josie Wall's father James C. Smith was married only once and had only 3 children , Josie being one . Who is Laura ?

I would like to find out who the parents are of Mae M. or Minnie M. COOPER/SMITH are , to solve this mystery .

Any help appreciated .

Satia
