Virginia Jennie as dau of Joseph D Newberry NC
and Sarah Elizabeth Butler Mississippi

Jennie married as first wife to Francis Roscoe Gauntt
Francis R Ganntt Texas Marriages 1837-1973
marriage:6 December 1900 Karnes Texas
spouse: Jennie Newberry

Jennie and Francis had one son born for sure
Gauntt Birth Date:16 Oct 1903 Pullin Karnes
Texas Male
Father Francis Gauntt Mother Jennie Gauntt
Certificate Number: 85321 [No more info yet]

Its possible she had another son name
Ford Francis Gauntt. There is such a child living
1920 with Francis parents with this name but unable
to totally prove he is Jennie and Francis son at
this time. This due to the 1920 census he is listed
right in between Ida and William Woodward's two proven kids, Jake and Willie Mae.
These kids got tagged with Francis Gauntt surname
but they are Woodward and not Gauntt, so is this
Ford F really Jennie and Francis son? I have
tracked this Ford thru marriage/death and still
unable to firmly prove his parents.
If he is Jennie's son why is he living with
Ida and Francis 1910 unless he is really Francis
son with Jennie? Jennie is alive in 1910 but she
had some issues and was living with her grandson's
family being taken care of so that might be the
reason IF this Ford is Francis son. Jenny by 1920
or little after census was in the San Antonio state
hospital and later died there 1936.
Unable to locate this Ford on F-A-G anywhere and is
not with his wife where she is buried.
