Surnames: Ivy, Ivey
I have a cemetery record showing burials in Keene Cemetery of Johnson County, TX showing that a "M S Ivy" is buried there. Birth date is Jan 05 1863 and death date is 02 Sept 1901. I am trying to find out what the initials M S stood for so that I might be able to come up with her maiden name. She was married to Francis Marion Ivey.

Any help appreciated.

My family line that I am working on is Carrie E Ivey/Ivy Hyatt, born in MS 1872 and she is buried in Keene Cemetery with this MS Ivy and MS Ivy is listed as 'wife of F. M. -mother. To me this indicates that MS Ivy is Carrie E Ivey Hyatt's mother.

I show Francis Marion (1830) on the 1900 census with son Jacob in Grayson, TX. I than show death date for this same Francis Marion as Jan 30, 1907 and is buried in TX State Cemetery in Austin.

This leads me to believe that the MS Ivy that is buried in Keene cemetery would be Margaret ? Ivy that married FM Ivy around 1878 based on birth of dght Minnie B.

Guess going have to order some certificates to get this one straightened out.

From what you have sent, the Francis Marion born 1857 does not even have a daughter named Carrie.

Thanks for the info.

The mother of Carrie Ella Ivy Hyatt was Nancy E Thompson born appx 1830 in Mississippi (per 1870 census) who also mother of daughter Jessie E Ivey, Josie E Ivy "Lindly" Lane and Jacob W Ivy all born in Mississippi. Problem is I can not find a Nancy Thompson born in MS in this timeframe in the 1850 & 1860 census records.

Francis Marion then married Margaret G Thompson in Grayson county Texas in 1878 they had Minnie B Ivy in Grayson Co TX 1879. It is unknown if Thompson was Margaret's maiden name as record does not say Miss or Mrs.

It was just coincidence that Francis Marion Ivy, son of James M Ivy & Rebecca, from Walker Co Georgia happened to be in Johnson county in 1900 census.

Josie Ivy married Isaac "Linley/Linsley" in Grayson county 1885 then she married Wm P Lane in Grayson Co 1892. She had one daughter Fay "Linsley" appx 1886. I do not find Josie, William and dtr Fay in 1900 census. I do not find marriage record for Carrie E Ivy to James Clarence Hyatt who was previously married in 1901 in Faulkner Co AR.

1. Francis Marion Ivy born SC or GA 1825 - 1830 listed in 1850 & 1860 census records in Pontotoc Co MS with parents. I do not find Nancy E Thompson in 1850 & 1860 census in Pontotoc county.

2. F. Marion Ivey married MISS N. E. Thompson 14 Aug 1864 Pontotoc Co MS.

3 Francis M, Nancy E, Jessie E, Josie A and Jacob W transcribed as "Irey" are listed in 1870 census in Lee County Mississippi. Tupelo is in this county noted as place of birth on Josie Lane's death certificate in 1957 in Joshua.

5. F M and son Jacob W Ivy are in Grayson Co TX 1900 census and that is last record I find for either of them. I do not find Nancy or Margaret Ivy/Ivey nor Jeremiah and Celia Ivy listed in the Grayson county cemetery records. I do not find that "Jessie", Carrie or Minnie married in Grayson county. I do not know if Margaret G Thompson was related to Nancy E Thompson or not.

Walter Lane Terrell, informant on Josie Lane's death certificate was her grandson, also known as Lane W Terrell born Tarrant Co TX 08 Jul 1907 lived in Fort Worth in 1940 census wife was Lettie born in TN abt 1902. His parents were Walter Lawrence Terrell b. TX about 1883 and Fay "Linsley" born in TX abt 1887, widowed mother in law listed as Mrs. W P Lane b. MS abt 1867 in 1920 household in Fort Worth. This was Josie Ivy. Walter Lane Terrell died in El Paso 02 June 1976 retired from post office and a WW II vet wife Lettie was the informant and he is buried at Ft. Bliss Natl Cem. "Josia E Iviey" married Isaac "Linlay/Lindly/Linsley" in Sherman 18 Jane 1885 who are parents of Fay then Josie married W P Lane 25 May 1892 in Grayson County. I presume Isaac "Lindly" died and is buried in Grayson county.

For certain two families are involved in your search. M. S. Ivy was Mary Savannah (nee: Conner) Ivy (5 Jan 1863 - 2 Sep 1901). Her Francis Marion Ivy (24 Dec 1857 - 18 Feb 1926) was born in Georgia and died in Oklahoma. You are correct they did not have a daughter Carrie born ca. 1873. They wed 9 Oct 1881 in Hill County. Carrie's father was 27 years older than the namesake who died in Oklahoma. What death certificate(s) do you plan to order? Apparently there were three kids born to Margaret LNU: Jacob, Carrie, and Minnie? Carrie's husband did not know his mother-in-law. I don't see a death listing for Jacob or Carrie? Perhaps Mississippi Marriages might answer your question? Scratch Jacob 'cause he was born to Nancy Thompson.

I believe Carrie E Ivey/Ivy was also dght of Nancy E Thompson. Carrie E is on the 1880 census, Grayson, TX as bein born MS 1873. Like most children that end up with a step mother at an early age, they classify the step mother as their mother and sometimes don't know their biological mother.

I have a copy of Carrie's DC. She died Aug 30, 1966 in Joshua, Johnson, TX. The same undertaker was used for her, James Clarence Hyatt and Josie Ivey Lane, so I have also contacted them.

I have sent email to a church in Joshua, TX to see if the Ivy's & Hyatt's were members. James C Hyatt was a Baptist preacher in his early days.

I found 3 Baptist Churches listed in Joshua, so I will check with them one by one.

Agree Nancy E. Thompson was probably Carrie's mom. Think a simple solution might entail a phone call to Grayson County Clerk? http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/voter/cclerks.shtml#M County Clerks have marriages indexed grooms-to-brides, and vice versa, usually in two volumes (early years and more recent). Request a "quickie" lookup in the index for F. M. Ivy. If my reasoning is on target, he wed Margaret G. Thompson, 24 May 1878, in Grayson? Familysearch has F. W. Ivey but that would not be the first time an "M" was mistaken for a "W". If accurate, that'll also probably estimate the demise of Nancy?
