John Alvin Humphries
Hi Shirley,

Is there some reason that John's two children from his first marriage with Mary Adelle Taylor are not listed as children who survived him?

Amanda Suttle Pratt
Hello Shirley! Thank you for all you have done with your research and documentation. I didn't see anything about using your pictures, but I wonder if I may use the picture of Amanda Pratt's headstone? I've never known where she is buried. She and her husband, R.H. Pratt, are some of my great.....aunts and uncles.

Man in photo not Henry M Scott

I have been told by others, and it makes sense, that the man in the photo is not Henry Montague Scott. It is Henry's widow, Elizabeth Burns Scott with her 2nd husband, John Sikes. They married in Franklin Parish, but the marriage license got filed in another place other than the marriage book, that's why it was so hard to find (but I have a copy). The clothing and photography look to be 1870s or so, not 1850s. My late cousin Lucille Scott Sullivan also believed the man in the photo to be Henry, but she also had Henry living until 1899, which he did not. Please look into this, and I can look up the marriage license for you.
