My Samuel T Griffis b 1815 married Lois Martin b 1818
on Jan 2, 1830 in Pulaski County, KY
Census records I have found indicate that Samuel was living with "ALCY "Griffis(wife) in 1850
Lois Griffis in 1860 and then Lois is listed as widow in 1870 . Then in 1880 there is a "LOUISA" GRIFFIS
listed as "grandmother" in the home of Riley Griffis.
I'm pretty sure these are all the same woman
But how did the census taker get "ALCY" out of Lois .. I almost understand "Louisa" from Lois, But ALCY????
any ideas anybody
