Mertice Eugenia Dooley Griffis
My research indicates that Mertice, Find A Grave memorial # 36811664, was a daughter of Walter E Carter, Find A Grave memorial # 69343783, and Marvel Pepper Carter, Find A Grave memorial # 69343582, and her name was Mertice Eugenia Carter (not Dooley).

She was married to Wilbur Jackson Best, 24 Sep 1930 in Greensville Co., VA prior to her marriage to Mr Griffis. Wilbur's Find A Grave memorial # 126545954.

If you'd like, I'll be happy to send you more proof of these connections.

Please correct Mertice's name and make the above connections.

Thank you.
