My Great Grandfather is J W Turner b. Sept 3, 1850 in Missouri, Married Julia Fredona Smith in 1889 in Roswell, New Mexico. I have hit a brick wall in finding his parents. His parents were both from Virginia and I have now found Julia's Mother, but not her father as they were married between the 1870 and 1880 census.
I have traced my brother-in-law's Granddad Edgar F. Cockrell b. July 1866 in Missouri back to F B Cockrell b. 1847 (not state) and hit a wall. All I can find is his birth year and his spouse Emma Fischer b 1846 in Kentucky. Can anyone help?
I don't know how to find ancestors that were between censuses. My gr gr grandmother Melinda Elizabeth McCarley was married to a Smith right after the 1870 census and was either widowed or divorced before the 1880 census. She had two daughters, Julia Fredona Smith and Alice B. Smith before she married her 2nd husband George Clayton Neill, either while she was pregnant with Alice or right after her birth. They lived in Texas. But in 1880 had moved to New Mexico. All the trees I have found show Julia and Alice with the surname Neill while still living with their mother, which is false. Can anyone out there help me?
