Hello Angie.

Here is your grandfather profile (for others willing to help).

I found your grandparents mariage record (17 Nov 1892, Marion, FL):

I also found your grandfather's death cert.:

Parents information is said "unobtainable". The informant was your aunt Lula's husband.


Other sources you could add to his profile:

(On the 1900 Census is said he was born May 1869 and his parents were born in FL)


I hope the information above may help in your search.
