Thanks you for taking the time to respond. I am going to Franklin Parish late next week to see what I can find. I have never been to a courthouse/clerk of court office to do research so I'm hoping that I can get some info there. I'm not really sure that Rosie Yates was the first wife's name. I had been told that by one of the family members a long time ago. Before he died, my grandfather said he thought her name sounded like Rosie, but he wasn't for certain. Thank you for sending the links!
