Searching for info on Lydia McKennis who married George Walter Weldy.  Her birth would have been after 1865.  They lived in the Mobile, Al. area.  They also had six children. Denvia, Audrey, Maurice Weldy, Venton Weldy, Monnie Bea.   I've found the burial places of George and his sons but cannot find any other information on Lydia or a McKennis family that includes a Lydia, Lidia or any name that might use Lydia as a nickname.

Her daughters death cert lists her as "Linda" Mcinnis born in Leaksville, MS.   Census data indicates she was born abt 1875 in Mississippi.  Don't know that will be much help.   She apparenty remarried to a Frank Smallwood.

The information is from familysearch.org. at https://familysearch.org/

It is completely FREE and some records have an image available as well that you can view, save, print. 

For example the 1900 transcribed census said "dau Dennis 6 A", however when you view the image it actually was written out Denvia. 

There is a search tool on the above home page where you can enter name, date range, location, parents, spouses, etc and search.  It is often best to put in a range for year instead of exact year when you start and then narrow it down.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting
