My Mary Elizabeth Durham was born May 15, 1857 died Feb 13, 1940. She was born and died in Humphreys County, Waverly, Tennessee. She married William Malcolm Carter in 1875. I think we are talking about two different people but I thank you very much for getting back to me.

I am researching my older Durhams, the oldest being William H. Durham born in 1816, maybe in Kentucky and married Elizabeth Louisa Thomason in 1839 Elizabeth was born in 1818 and we think her and William both could have been born in Tennessee although some think William came from Kentucky.

My Mary Elizabeth and her husbnd William Malcolm Carter raised their seven children in Humphreys County, Tennessee.

Thank you again,
