Hi Dave,

From your bio, I see that you are a well experienced researcher. I have been doing research for mostly my families in Scott Co for about 25 years.

I searched for years without being able to find one of my Abraham Lane descendants - Dora Smith who m. Edward Johnson on 4 Sep 1919. I finally took another look after reading her sister's obituary (Eliza "Sis" (Smith) Collins who d. at age 102 on 1/18/2015.)

I found them in the 1930-40 census records in Lee Co, VA. The 1940 census abstract is below. I thought I had found Bernice (Johnson) Taylor and Charles Taylor in your findagrave memorials #68806320 and #68806162. The ages match and the circumstances match.

But I was surprised to show Bernice with a surname Cowan. From the 1940 census, she had a son Bobby Ray Dingus so she had an earlier marriage to a Dingus.

So I am to my question - is it possible that there were two Charles and Bernice Taylors in Lee Co with the same ages? Or maybe Bernice also had a marriage to a Cowan before she married Charles Taylor?

I really appreciate your time in helping me resolve this family questions. You may email me at dwlane@chartertn.net.

Hey Dave,

I was curious where you got the burial info about Christian Blane Houseman? I have not had a chance to visit Western yet as request the plot cards. Do you have this data or know who else is buried within the plot CC-79?

Thanks!
