  • "Juleyan's daughter Peggy married a Willie Smith, I believe.  Mary married Lonnie England. Minolevia 'innie' married Willie Cordell.  My records show that Minnie and Willie had two daughters, Mary and Martha.  I have Mary marrying someone named 'Clemons' and Martha marrying a 'Freeman.'"

    The name Lonnie from family sources would be a nickname for Richard's middle name Elonzo.

    One genealogy reports that Mary died on 22 Jun 1940 in Hanceville, Cullman, Alabama, but provides no doucmentation.  No genealogy reports any spouse for her.  Most report only an approximate birth date, from a census.  But one has an exact birth date, again with no documentation, 25 Mar 1874, Cullman, Cullman, Alabama.  This date and place is consistent with other documented family information.  No genealogy has borth this birth date and the death date reported by the other genealogy cited here.

    From the name in the 1880 census, it appears Mary may be a nickname for Merrenia.  One private genealogy, in fact, reports that Mary was a nickname.

    With her birth and death dates, and her married name from my first source above, I was able to find her burial informaitn on Find a Grave.  The name on her grave is Mary C, and her husband's name is Richard Elonzo, both matching the marriage record referenced above.  The middle name Elonzo on his burial memorial explains the name Lonnie, which has not been found in any records.
