Research Notes

Following are research notes I have gathered while trying to determine whether Alvis was married 2 or 3 times. Most information I have seen indicates only two marriages and relegate the "Margaret J" reference on the 1860 Census to an enumerator's error. However, someone on FamilySearch has linked the 1860 Census record to a Margaret J Helms. This timeline contains all records found to date which list or omit references to the wives of Alvis Baucom as well as any references I have found to Margaret Helms living in Union County, North Carolina, during the appropriate time period. This research is ongoing but, at this time, I have chosen to only include the two wives for which I have proof. McGee-1611 07:46, 4 March 2016 (EST)
