I know, from Granny Newcomb Derrick's Bible, that her Mother was Laura Letsinger born March 8, 1883 and she died July 27,1914 when Granny was seven months old. Laura's Mother was Liza Herron (spelling may be in err) Her father was Bob Letsinger.
The 1870 United States Census has a Robert Letsinger (14) living in District 9 Knox Tennessee. Possible that his mother is Lucinda 1832. She is living with Robert , Garlinda, and Louis. Other Letsingers living close by.
The 1880 Census shows a Robert A Letsinger(24) married to A Eliza J Letsinger (25) Children: Amos W (4), Sarah E (2), Edy B (1). (This information agrees with Granny's Bible: Laura had brothers-W.A .and A.W . sisters-Ede and E-----?.Maybe Emma.) Next door to them lived Lucinda(48) and her children Garlinda A.(20) and Lewis W (18.) Nancy Raby (60) and Samuel (18) were neighbors
Who where the parents of Liza(Eliza) J Herron(or Herrin)?????
Who were the parents of Robert Letsinger??? I thin...
