Morgan was also 32, 1st marriage, born in Tenn, her father born in NC. My grandmother had 2 older sisters :Nellie who married Andrew Ballard; they resided near Poteau, OK. She was supposedly 10 years older than my grandmother. ; Mollie who married Joe Weaver they lived in Fort Smith , Arkansas. Grandma also had a brother named Will. Don't know what ever happened to him. I don't know the name of James M. South's first wife or where she died. Mary J South died when my grandmother was very young. I came across a death record for a M J South in Washington County, Virginia in 1884. Don't know if it is my ggrandmother or not.
