I'm looking for info. on a Robert and Ida Coltrane, they are suppose to have raised a Minnie Faye Lamkin in the early 1900s, she was born in 1896 in that area, she wasn't legally adopted by them. Her parents are suppose to have been George and Martha William Lamkin. I believe this George is my g.gr.mother, Lizzie Lamkin Hill's older brother George T. Lamkin.
Minnie Faye Lamkin appears on the 1900 Carroll Co. VA census, Pipers Gap Dist. in the home of Mary C. Coltrane, age 56, b. VA. Mary is a widow and has several children listed in her home being Robert M., age 26, Sarah J., age 24, Mary O., age 21, David A., age 20, Alice B., age 16, Minnie Faye is age 4........The son Robert M. Coltrane is the census taker in that district in 1900 but wasn't married yet.........
So does anyone out there connect to these Coltrane's and know anything more abt. them that might help me??? My Lamkin's migrated to that county and district in the early 1870s but spread out into other states in the early 1900s.......Any help appreciated, thanks, Kay...........
