  • I had an early entry in my genealogy for a Belle Padgett, as the wifeof George Williams.  I could tell from the census entries that she hadbeen previously married to a Padgett, but had not been able to makethe exact connection.  I had not been able to determine her maidenname or family.  In January 2009, I got an email from her grandsonJimmy Jones, who gave me her full name and family connections.

    "My grandmother was Nancy Bell Jenkins m. George Williams. ... NancyBell Jenkins was married to a Padgett first & he was killed in alogging accident.  Then she married George Williams who had just movedinto the Ethel area."

    I did not find their entry in the 1910 census for a long time, but inSeptember 2009, I was able to clarify which Padgett was the father ofBelle's children.  I had a W E Padgett as son of Burl Wiley Padgett,but did not have enough details for him to tie him to a wife andchildren.  The 1910 census filled in the missing details and I wasable to connect these individuals properly.
