Hi Byron,

I meant to tell you an interesting fact that I discovered when I went digging into the David Hubbard Durham family.

Three of the Durham brothers: David H, Henry F, and George C Durham married three Smith sisters in Lincoln County, TN. The sisters were Nancy Jane, Elizabeth, and Mary Frances. The sisters were Indian in origin. Furthermore, the marriages took place over a span of two years. Just one of those interesting little discoveries which add to the fun of this research.
That's all,

D.H. Durham and Nancy (Smith) Durham did get married 5 April 1870 in TN...that part is correct.

The confusion results from the 1880 Census taker writing 'DAVID R.' SON, born 1871; when it's actually 'DOVEY R.(Rebecca), daughter, born 1871.
That threw me for a loop too, until I realized the error.
SIDENOTE: The D.E. Durham, age 6, is 'Dock Easton' Durham.

Then Nancy dies ABT 1885, and David Hubbard Durham remarries in 1896.
David Hubbard's second wife is Alabama Burns born 01 OCT 1865.
David Hubbard and Alabama are the parents of
Robert Emmett Durham Born 08 Sept 1997 Died 19 Jan 1967 Burial at Harris Chapel Cemetery in Colbert CO, AL.

Robert Emmett and Annie Lee Durham are the parents of
John Herbert 'Nink' Durham born 1926 in Colbert County, AL, where he presently resides.

The great luck of having met 'Nink' Durham is that his memory is intact, and he's lived in that area his entire life. He has met and interacted with many of the people that I'm researching in Colbert County, AL.
My method of research was to travel to the Pleasant Site/Rock Creek Alabama area, pick a road, and knock on everyone's door. (What an awesome journey.)

Happy to help further if that isn't the problem you're referring to.
