I think we tried to solve this before. Can we start from the beginning ? I am a little confused looking back on previous posts !

My mothers name was Helen A. Kieffer born 1921 in PA, marriage 1946 in Maryland, died !969 in Illinois. Father George Harding Webb born 1920 in Newport TN. died 2012. My grandfather George W Webb born 1891 in Tn. Martha Jane Stinnett born 1868 died 1906, married James A. Webb in TN they were his parents. After Martha died in 1906 James Webb married Mary Etta Sherlin about 1907 in TN.(Cocke County). this is where it gets sticky. According to the 1910 census both Mary and Ollie were in the home of James Webb.Mary Etta was born in NC to Henry Sherlin and Ollie is listed as his Granddaughter,but was Mary her mother or was one of the sons of Henry her father and who was the mother. And if Mary is the Mother then who is the father? as you can see if Mary is Ollie's Mother then Both Martha Jane and Mary Etta are my G-grandmothers.

George Harding Webb --- George W Webb --- James A Webb
m 1945 Maryland m m
Helen A Kieffer --- Martha Jane Stinnett 19 August 1888
--- Ollie L Sherlin --- Etta Sherlin 6 Dec 1906

In the 1910 Ollie L Sherlin is listed as the step daughter of James A Webb.

If Etta Sherlin married J A webb in 1906 Ollie must be Etta's daughter by a previous marriage or she was born out off wedlock to Etta Sherlin.

So yes you do have two g/grandmothers Martha Jane Stinnett mother of George W Webb.

Etta Sherlin mother of Ollie L Sherlin and ????? ???????

I think this confirms Etta was not married when she had Ollie and you might never know her fathers name
