> Thank you Tom,
> I would love to be able to find an existing church record. I
me so confused that I wanted so very much to have a birth record to
prove her birth parents.
> There are few surviving relatives to ask questionsof...Onecousin , a grandchild of Inez, who lives in Indiana says
Inez 's surname was JOHNSTON and that she was related to the General
ALBERT SYDNEY JOHNSON who fought in the war between the states..This
woman says she was very close to her grandmother INEZ and was told
many stories of how courageous the general was...I think this was
all a fairy tale. I have heard before of stories told of important
people who were never related to the person telling the story, it
all being a myth...
> ..I have Inez's buial records which state her fathers name wasGeorge and mother UNKNOWN. This info was given by the son of INEZ .
I really think the granddaughter and the son who gave the info
didn't have any idea of her parents names.
> The names you list below, Sidney and Lydia seem to me to be thetrue parents. and that her name was not spelled JOHNSTON, with a T.
but Johnson . Now I must say that the son did spell her name without
the T. and I have an article from the Covington News back in
1889 ,the year she and Thaddeus were married, and it said that Miss
Inez JOHNSON of Covington was leaving on the fast train to Sanford
Florida to marry Thaddeus W. Geiger.... I also have a copy of her
marriage certificate with her name again JOHNSON, so that gives me
proof of the surname ....I would be delighted to have a copy of her
birth certificate which would give me the correct parents names, and
that was what I have tried so hard to obtain, but to no avail...

like a birth certificate, I will keep it this way
