Hi Donnie,

There is a considerable amount of messed up information.

The Social Security Application Index alleges the mother to be

Loula Duckworth Welborn

Birth:  Jun. 16, 1874
Death:  Apr. 30, 1913
Family links: 
  Walter Leland Welborn (1870 - 1934)
  Walter Leland Welborn (1902 - 1928)*
  Joseph Duckworth Welborn (1906 - 1941)*
Williamston Memorial Park
Anderson County
South Carolina, USA


Is this the right parents are does more research need to be done?    I see her dad had a second wife Francis if this is correct.  I can remember my mother saying Welborn was one of the family names but I never remember her saying Duckworth was also one, I would have remembered Duckworth because back in the 1970's when I was a child we traded at a store with this name in the Dunnin Mill area in Greenville,SC it was called Duckworth Grocery it was where Washington Ave and Farris rd and Hwy 20 Piedmont Hwy  all connect most likely I will find lots more information now, please share anything about this family and I will put it together with what I can remember from my mothers stories,  Thanks Steve..
