I am looking for information on Ezekiel Melvin of Bladen County, his wife was Edith White they had seven children. My grandmother was Fannie Melvin who married Roy McDonald in 1921. I am looking for information on her brothers and sister.
I was able to track Ezekiel and his family in the census records. He was married twice. In 1880 he was married to a woman named Francis. In 1900 he was married to a woman named Mary . Their year of marriage is 1900. Mary only had two children and both are living. Fanny(ie) is listed as age 4 on the census and 5 other children are listed. If you haven't seen these records, I'd be happy to transcribe them here.
