Hi, i'm looking for the parents of my 2nd gg Susan Greenway who married my 2nd gg William A. Davis.

I believe my 2nd Great Grandmother is possibly one of the kids of a James K. Greenway of Carter Co. TN? She was B. May. 1865 in TN. She m. my 2nd gg William A. Davis B.Sep. 1850 in NC according to the 1900 census. In the 1900 census they are both living in Carter County TN. And 2 houses down are what appears to be a

Jones K. or R. Greenway B.Dec. 1848 in TN according to the census. And living with a Mary J.

In the next house down is a Joseph W. Greenway? B.abt. 1867 in TN with his wife and kids. I have a copy of the 1900 census if anyone wants to see it.

It is also possible Susan is the daughter of a Jack and Elizabeth Greenway. In the 1880 census (unfortunately i do not have a copy of it.) In Washington TN There is a Jack Greenway B. abt. 1840 married to a Elizabeth B. abt 1837

their kids are as follows:

(Dau.) Sue Greenway (possibly Susan?) B. abt. 1860? in TN

(Son) R.A. Greenway B. abt. 1863 in TN

(Son) J.T. Greenway B. abt. 1866 in TN

(Dau.) M.I. Greenway b. abt. 1869 in TN

(Dau) Effie Greenway B. abt. 1870 in TN

(Son) John Greenway B. abt. 1871 in TN

(Son) Ben Greenway B. abt. 1874 in TN

(Son) Burnie Greenway B. abt. 1875 in TN

(Grand. Dau) Virtie Greenway B. abt. 1875 in TN.

I believe her father was James. As you can see from the 1900 census Susan was living in Carter Co. TN. Not Washington Co. TN. And she should be 5 years older than what the 1880 census states.

What do you think? Looking forward to a reply from everyone. Hopefully somebody can help me. Opinions are welcomed as well,i'm not sure which one is 100% her father,thanks.
