Does any one have a Peter Lister (Lester) born in 1842 married to Francis Crawford on their tree?

+7 votes
I am looking for information (parents, death date of Peter Lister) about my 3x great grandfather and my 3x great grandmother Francis Crawford. According to census info Peter Lister (Lester) was born in South Carolina but according to his daughter's death certificate he and Francis were both born in Alabama.

This is something you might wish to check into R,

I found records of their 1865 mariage in "Macon, Alabama" - record 1, record 2

Macon was the location of an Indian reservation according to WikiPedia and others.

I found a Peter Lester born 1842 (born in NY) living in NY in 1900 on a reservation called "Alabama Township, Tonawanda Indian Reservation, Geneese, New York"

Here is the 1900 Census record showing Peter, and the original document image.

I hope this lead helps!
