Are there any James Roper of Lawrence Co., TN' researchers out there? I have a problem. James's daughter Telitha C. Roper married Robert A. Williams, 19 Aug 1857 in Lawrence county. I found them in 1860 together, then 6 Dec 1860 he married Ruthy J. Newton in Lawrence co., TN. In 1870 his wife is listed as R. J., then in 1880 his wife is listed as T. C.; In 1900 his wife is listed as Telitha C.. by 1910 he is married to an Emma and listed as being married 3 times.
Ruthy died 27 Dec 1881. I had thought Telitha C. Roper had died in 1860, now I'm wondering. Does anyone know. Did he leave Telitha then go back to her years later??
