Notes

  • Richard Bates reports the birth date of Mary Constance Terry as 15 Aug1851 in Murray County, Georgia.

    In 1880, John Bailey Smith and Mary Constance Terry are living inFinchers Township, Whitfield County, Georgia.

    1880 Federal Census, Whitfield County, Georgia, 9 June, Finchers(Militia District 1035), District 197, page 13A, Hse #109, Fam #110
    Keith, John B W M 35 Farmer GA GA SC
    Keith, Mary C W F 28 Wife Keeping House GA GA SC
    The children are listed under the notes for John Bailey Keith.

    In 1900, John and Mary have moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee.

    Members of the family were reported in the 1909 and 1910 Charlotte,North Carolina, City Directory.  A Mrs Mary Keith appears at first tobe Mary Constance Terry Keith, and Samuel M is her son.  But this MaryE Keith (a widow) is not Mary Constance, because our Mary Constancewas reported in Chattanooga again in the 1910 census.  I have not beenable to identify this Elliot M in the directory as part of John andMary Constance's family.

    But Samuel M does appear to be the son of Mary Constance Terry andJohn Bailey Keith.  The identity of the elder Mary in this directorylisting is uncertain.  Margaret is the name of a cousin of Samuel, butof different parents from Marsh.  Called Maggie in the 1909 directory,this may be the Maggie reported as a 5-year-old cousin in Mary andJohn B Keith's household in 1900.

    This same family group is listed again in the Charlotte City Directoryfor 1910.

    In 1910, widowed Mary has moved into the household of her widowed sonJohn Bailey Keith, Jr.  They are at a different address inChattanooga.  Brother Hershell (Herschel) and his family are alsoliving with them.  The two brothers are jointly running a hotel.

    By 1920, Mary has moved back to Fincher Township, Whitfield County,Georgia.  She is listed as Head of the household, and living in herhousehold is her single son Louis C.  The township is listed asFincher in this census, though in the 1880 census, it was Finchers(except for a couple of pages on which the name was written asFincher).

    By 1930, Mary and her son Louis had moved back to back in Chattanooga,Tennessee.  Another son, David V is also single and living with them.Mary owns her home, but has no occupation.  David is a life insuranceagent and Louis is a farmer, though they live in town.
