There were supposed to be 23 children and three wives. Can only find two wives ...Martha Alce Turner and Dora Emily Frazier. One child, Alice Booth Frazier Roach find a grave lists her mother as Martha Murphy Mangum but no other records found listing her as a wife or mother to any of Williams children.  William went by Bill or Billy from Va. But moved to Nc.

I would be helpful to first post sources for your grandfather https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Booth-4562.  And after that it should be more reliable.  Good luck!

Thank you, Vic!
William Nathan Booth was married to Annie Meeks Booth and Dora Emily Frazier Booth.

I was aware Billy had a second marriage after Annie. Was this Martha Alice Turner? My grandma said his second wife died at the birth of her 1st child and the baby died later because there was no way to feed the baby at the time.

Dora was my great great grandmother. She was 13 yrs old when she married Billy Booth. She was the mother of 12 children.  

My grandmother said Billy was the father of 23 children. I have some of them listed in my family tree on my heritage. I'm still researching this line as we finally were able to make it past my great grandmother, Dora's oldest child, last year. My grandmother had written some of the history down for us but the letter was missing for many years.
Martha Alice Turner was his second wife.  If Dora was you GGgrandmother  who was Mother? Thanks so much for info. Ive been stuck for awhile. Are you one ancestry?
