I am searching for my great great grandparents. JIM HINSON m. NANCY CAROLINE CONNER(OR). My Great Grandfather was Lawson L. Hinson, b. 2/14/1870 in Henry County, AL (it is listed as Houston County, AL now, but Houston County did not become a county until 1908. Henry County was divided to become Houston County). Anyway, he married 1st JOSEPHINE "DODY" HERRING in Henry County, AL on Jyly 2nd, 1893 (recorded in book 1889 page 526)They spelled his name "Lawson HENSON" and she was listed as "DODY" Herring. Lawson 2nd married Renie (maiden name unknown), she was previously married to an IRVING. Lawson actually died right over the line of Houston Co., AL in Jackson Co., FL. July 7th, 1943. He and Josephine are buried at Antioch Assembly of God in Houston Co., AL (it is listed in the Cemetery Records as being in Jackson Co., FL). We have only been able to find Lawson in 1 census in Alabama. Nothing before or after. ODD don't you think. Anyway, I got his parents names from his death certificate and it states that JIM HINSON AND NANCY CAROLINE CONNER (OR) were both born in Alabama. As you can imagine there are 100's or JIM HINSON's out there. UGH. Any help would be appreciated.
Oh, just as a side, Josephine "Dody" Herring's parents were WILLIAM G. "RUGER" HERRING AND CARRIE C. DAVIS brothers and sisters were WILLIAM PERRY "BUD" HERRING, HATTIE HERRING, ELIZAH A "TINK" HERRING, AND CHARLES O. "BABE" HERRING.

Ok, that is about all I can think of.
I am searching for any information on my great great grandmother, Sarah M. Raley. We just found out recently that the M. possibly stood for McCoy. We have been told many stories one of which was that she was an indentured servant and the father of her 3 children was the man (who was married) that she was indentured to. She had William Raley (who was last known living in Houston County, AL. Leola Raley (my great grandmother) who last lived in the Cottonwood/Grangeberg, AL area and is supposed to be buried at Bethelham in the same area. Leola was married 3 times (1) John Wesley Barrenting they had my grandmother: Leona Barrentine Branton, she 2nd married ? Jarvis, they had 3 children. David Jarvis who lived in the Taylor/Rehobeth area he was the custodian of Rehobeth High School in Rehobbeth, Houston Co. AL, Edna Raley who married ? Prevatt (still living) They lived in Houston Co., AL. Lola B. Raley m. ? Anderson (still living)in Houston Co., AL The last child of Sarah M. Raley is unknown. The new name has brought up many questions: was she married? What happened to her husband? Was she indentured and why? Who was the family she lived with and could the man be the father of the children. I did speak to William several years ago, and he stated that was a fact, but refused to talk about it anymore, he was not happy.
