Sarah Ann Metz & Abraham King

I'm looking for information on my father's side of the family. I just recently found his birth certificate and it lists his mother's maiden name as Mett, but according to his death certificate, her maiden name was Metz.

I plan to post this info in both forums because I have no confirmation which is true at the moment.

Also, in the family bible (which I am going by from memory) and the death certificate, her given name was Sarah Ann, but on the birth certificate, it looks like something completely different...something like "Fary".

In any case, she married my grandfather, Abraham King and according to the birth certificate, had given birth to 11 children - my father, Cornet, being the 11th. She was 26 at the time and Abraham was 60. This was in 1931.

It notes that of the 11 children, only 6 (including my father) were alive when he was born. I only knew about 4 of them - my dad, his brother Booker, his sister Dot (Dorothy) and his other sister Odessa (the oldest of the 4). I am also looking to find information on the other 2 remaining siblings.

If any of this information sounds like it fits in your research, please let me know. Thanks!
