Margaret Helton

Margaret Maggie Helton b-12 Aug 1860 Hawkins, TN
d-14 Oct 1950 Harp, DeWitt, Illinois, she is the daughter of Pleasant Helton Sr and Elizabeth Neighbors.

She married William Columbus Claman b-15 Jul 1860 Rogersville, Hawkins, Tennessee d-25 Apr 1882 Hawkins, Tennessee m-29 Nov 1881 Hawkins, Tennessee

Maggie was pregnant with hers and William's only child when William Sr was shot and killed during an argument at the Marble Hill Distillery. Maggie gave birth to William Columbus Clamin Jr 01 Sep 1882 Hawkins, TN

The next document I have is the 1900 census, Maggie is HOH and 7 children are listed
William Jr 1882
Sallie 1886
George 1888
Clinton 1890
Mary 1892
Jesse 1894
Margaret 1897
and Maggie's mother Elizabeth Neighbors Helton. Everyone on the census is listed under the surname Helton. The census says she gave birth to 10 children and 7 were living, meaning there are 3 childen unidentified by name.

After Maggie's mother died Maggie moved her family to Missouri in 1903, where she married William Sevier 31 Oct 1909, The surname given for Maggie on the marriage license is Clemmons and the children use the same name from then on.

1910 they are still living in Missouri
1920 until her death in 1950 Maggie is living in Illinois, I am trying to to find out who is the father of the children born after William Claman's death and prior to her moving to Missouri and what are the unidentified childrens names.

Can anyone help?
