Mattie Bates--Samuel F Scarborough
Posted by: Russell Bedell (ID *****6957) Date: August 08, 2011 at 15:41:45

Mattie was born in 1878 and Samuel in 1863. 1900 and 1910 US Census show children only 11 years younger than Mattie. She would have 11-12 years old. Mattie and Samuel were not married un 1897 well after many of the children were born. I suggest that Samuel was married twice with Mattie as the second wife. Does anyone know the name of the first wife?

Does anyone have documentation as to the names of Mattie's parents? There are a lot of guesses out there but not verifications.

Many thanks,
Russ Bedell
