Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.

My SIL is related to Isaiah Allen Gauntt and Hannah Louisa Lemonyon. We have been unable to find any documentation of their marriage. A couple of trees list their marriage year as 1881 but, again, no documentation. Have you had any luck finding documentation for this marriage? Thanks!
I also have not been able to find their marriage. I found documentation of Clifford Benjamin's birth in 1883, so 1881 is a reasonable estimate if he was their first child, but that's the best I have so far.Delete
Thanks, Janice, for your speedy reply! If I find anything, I'll be sure to share with you. Have a great New Year!Delete
You're welcome, Karen! Thank you, and have a great new year also!Delete
