In the 1880 census Garrett stated his father was born in NC and mother in FL
In the 1900 census Garrett stated his father was born in SC and mother in FL
In the 1880 census Garrett's mom stated she was born in FL
In the 1880 census Garrett's sister stated her dad was born in NC and mom in
In the 1850 census William Arledge stated he was born in GA
In the 1850 census Mary Arledge stated she was born in Tenn
I think in the 1880 or 1900 census Garrett could not remember if his father
was NC or SC but his sister stated NC and he, his mom and his sister all
stated his mom was in born in FL.  William and Mary said GA and Tenn so they
could not be Garrett's and Mary E's parents.  Do you think I am correct?
Thanks, Mary
