Re: South family in Washington County VA

In Reply to: South family in Washington County VA by Heidi Good of 1529

I, too, am chasing Souths in Washington Co. VA. Specifically, trying to locate the parents of Mack South, b. abt 1863 in Friendship (Washington Co.), VA. Mack married Margaret/Maggie Lloyd (or Wilson?) Dec 14, 1888 and had 4 children:
Bette b. abt 1890
Elcie Jane b. 1892
Walter Gibson b. 1894
Mary (May) Blanch

Mack died in 1944. His obituary lists the following survivors:
"4 sisters, Mrs. May Brumit, Mrs. Baker Hagy, and Mrs. Rose Holliday, all of Johnson City, TN, and Mrs. Felix Shew, Glade Spring Va; 3 brothers, Harvey South, Johnson City, Harry South, Louisville, KY, and Jess South, Johnson City..."

Does anyone have any ideas? There is a census listing from 1900 that includes a Harvey, Rosa, Jesse, Mary, and Harrie (along with 3 other youngsters) living with John M, aged 72, and Jennie J, aged 43. Mack could have been the child of an earlier marriage of John?
HELP!
Carissa
