This is a problem I have been trying to solve for several years now. Lillie Fuston is shown on all records so far found as having been born in October 1870. This includes 1900 census, death certificate and grave marker. Have not been able to locate any birth record or find her on the 1880 census.
The only problem is her listed father, James W Fuston (Fouston), was killed at Murphreesboro in 1862. Her widowed mother remarried to James Lawson in 1874.
This error shows up on the error report for my grandmother. If anybody has any brilliant ideas on how to locate more information for Lillie – like a better birth date, who her real father was, anything at all – it would really be appreciated.
