Augusta Mansell
Hey Wes,
After looking at the 1880 census showing Ralph at age 4 and Aunt Virginia Johnston living with Addison's family. I am thinking that Cecil is correct in saying that Augusta died during childbirth with Ralph. I don't know when the stone was placed there, I will check and see if the church has any records of when burial was. I can see where 1876 could be turned around to 1897. I will let you know if I find out anything. The only grandmother Cecil remembers is Lucinda and she received Addison's pension starting in 1903. Connie

Susan Eugena Mansell

I have been visiting with Cecil Mansell Godwin, Susan's daughter. I found out her (Susan's) parents were Elizabeth Lopes born in FL and Joseph Dansby born in N.C.

I have been looking for any information on the Augusta Johnston's sibling and parents. I have a copy of Clyde Gibson's book and several of the census show Augusta's sisters, Virginia & Francis living with Addison and Bryant at different times.

Cecil said she thinks that Augusta died during childbirth to Ralph, but the dates don't match. She said she really doesn't know. Augusta died before Cecil was born.

You mentioned at one time that there are pictures of Addison & Augusta and their children. I know some of your family, because I grew up at Turkey Creek Baptist Church. Cecil said she doesn't have any pictures but some of her older siblings' kids may. Can you help?

Augusta Mansell
Hi Wes,

I have come across some of my Dad's notes on family history. I have been looking for Augusta's sister Ameintha (spell?) Christina. She married Asa Whitehurst and I found him and his second wife Nellie @ Orange Hill Cemetery in Tampa.

In his notes it said that the Johnstons and Mansells moved to Florida together and that Jenny Patterson or Virginia Patterson was really the daughter of Virginia Johnston,but she was raised by Christina.

Have you come across any thing that could help me?

RE: Family pictures

Thank you so much. Are you or your cousin in the Plant City - Turkey Creek area? If so I would love to meet you. If you are not in the area I understand it may be a challenge to get together.

Family pictures
Hi Wes, I took a break from family history for a while and have recently jumped back in with both feet. I was wondering if you have come across any pictures of Augusta or any of her sibling. Five of her siblings were unmarried so there were no children to pass anything down. Thanks so much for your help in this matter I don't need the pictures per say just a scan if possible.

Do you know if Amelia's maiden was Vasquez? I am researching the Pablo Vasquez family and wonder if she might be one of his daughters.
