We might as well have been in a chat room today. I have Henry Clay Garlington dob as Aug 27, 1867 in Louisianna. Died March 2, 1918 and buried in Garlington Cemetery, Garlington Oklahoma. Wife was Frances (Fannie) James. In the 1900 Texas Census for Archer County he was listed as an Aug 1867 birthday which matches mine. Maybe we have two Henry Clay Garlingtons. The census does have other family errors. Jesse's dob is off by a year and the kids names are wrong. Elma is really Elmer and Matilda E. is actually Essie Matilda. Our family comes from Elmer. His first child was named E.F. and took the name Elmer Franklin (his father's full name) when he joined the Army. My husband is Elmer Franklin Jr.s first son. An interesting item for me was that Jesse married Etta May White whose mother was Matilda Ann Hatfield. I won't let my husband live down that connection. Hope we can figure all this out. It is interesting that both Henry and Jesse listed Mary Smith as their mother without a father's first name. Jesse's obit lists a half brother still alive at the time named Will Stanford. Makes you wonder if Henry and Jesse were raised by a husband of Mary's after the unknown name or John Hubbard if that is the connection.
