This was the daughter of Sylvanis Lafayette Stokes and Martha Elizabeth "Betty" Higdon Stokes. She was one of 11 siblings.

The book "Early Settlers Along The Old Federal Road In Monroe & Conecuh Counties Alabama" written by Mary E. Brantley and published in Baltimore by Gateway Press in 1979 provides some insite into this child. In the book the author publiches a cataloged index of the "Brantley-Thompson Cemetery" located near Brantley Crossroads. Within that index we find a transcript of this head ston:

"In Memory of Children of S.L. and M.E. Stokes, Infant Daughter born and died 22 Mar 1888 (other name illegible)"

With the year of birth matching genealogy records compiled by Peggy Sue Beckwort in 1998 and the match of parents we may conclude with confidents, "THIS IS A MATCH".
