    For long I was unable to find any details of the children of thisfamily, until July 2014, when I found a marriage record that seems tofit.  I have found what seems to be this youngest daughter's marriagerecord.  It is in the right place, Habersham County, Georgia, and thename follows the spelling given in the two censuses above, however,puzzling the names of those children may have been to us now.

    Marriage 21 Nov 1878 Habersham, Georgia
    Spouse Henry Taylor

    After finding this marriage record on 26 July 2014, I used the newclues to search some more.  I then was able to find Selina's death andburial information on Find a Grave.  The birth date reported on hergrave is later than the reported birth information form the 1860census would indicate.  Note that the age reported in that census was6 months.for a census date of 1 June.  This places her birth inDecember 1859.  But the grave reports a birth date in February 1860.
