I am grasping a straws here, but I feel that I have compelling evidence to suggest that the maiden surname of a woman about which I am seeking ancestry information may have been a CLEMENTS.

John M. LOGGINS (b. 07 January 1821) was married to a woman with the given name Ascenith (b. 30 August 1822) around the year 1845. This couple had at least four children who survived to be counted in the decennial censuses. Two of the latter, James C. and Joseph, are believed to have been born in Tuscaloosa Co., while the remaining two, Martha S. and Ann, are thought to have been born in Grimes Co. after the family moved to Texas.

The fact that leads me to believe that Ascenith's maiden surname was CLEMENTS is the fact that this couples eldest son, James C. LOGGINS, and his wife, Lydia Antoinette ALSTON, had the rather unique habit of naming their children after the full birth names of their parents. The name of their third child is Asenath Clements LOGGINS.

I am hoping that there is a CLEMENTS family researcher that can help to confirm this hypothesis and provide some additional information about Ascenith's ancestry. TIA - Herman
