WikiTree profile: Malekieh Stephens

I want to hear the story of how he managed to have a son thirty years after he died.  :D

I'm not his son I'm just related as I said thru sallie she is my 3rd great-grandmother as you can see below

Sarah "Sallie" Rainwater 1838–1908 Birth DECEMBER 1838 • Meriwether County, Georgia

Death AUGUST 14, 1908 • Tallapoosa, Haralson County, Georgia, USA

 

I believe what Vincent was referring to, is that Malekieh's profile says he died in 1863, but he's linked to a son Harry who was born in 1892. Could one of those dates be a typo?
I suspect that Sallie Rainwater is the missing link between the two generations.

Just posted this on another thread but thought I'd put it here too

Have you seen this?  http://www.therainwatercollection.com/reference/247_dswebber_dec1981_entire-doc.pdf

Looks like a pretty comprehensive genealogy and there might be clues in it if your lady is not listed.    I am pretty sure I saw her name in it.
