My grandfather was Logan C. Conner/Connor. He married Lydia Eliza Dishongh McGaughy in 1892 in Marshall Co., Ms. My grandmother, Lydia Alice Conner was born in 1893 and shortly afterwards her parents divorced. She says she remembers seeing him once when she was about six when he came for a short visit with a grown son named William.
I found an L.C. Conner in the 1860 Tippah Co. census married to Barbary E. She was the daughter of Andrew Prather who died in 1858 according to probate records. In the 1860 census he had a son James B. b. 1858 and a son Robert M. 4/12. I found him again in the 1880 Tate Co., Ms. census and he also had a daughter Mollie b. 1867 and son William b. 1877.
My grandmother thinks L.C. lived in Ark. after the divorce. He was born about 1825 in N.C. Perhaps a Prather researcher can help me out with this line. Any help appreciated.
