Correct Father of Mary (King) Conkin McDonald?

87 views
Hi everyone! I'm trying to figure out the correct father for Mary (King) Conkin McDonald. Her mother was Alzira (Alzie, Elzie) Hicks and she married Edmond King. On the 1860 census, Mary is listed in the household of Alzira and Edmond. However, on Mary's death certificate, Alzira and John King are listed. Is this an error or is John her father and not Edmond? I have been trying to look for info for John too but nothing. I'm thinking it's either an error or John is a brother to Edmond. Any and all help is much appreciated! Thanks! :)

maybe look for the kids on census other records?
search of land, tax, and census records of Hawkins County Tennessee, dates 1835-1845

there are no records for John King

evident conclusion is that Ed is her dad
Hi Eddie! Thanks for your reply. Yes, I believe Amanda is a sister to Mary. Thanks for all of this information. I thought John could be a brother to Edmond. Must be an error on Mary's death certificate.
