My other email is cmarkham@co.durham.nc.us. Yes, my maiden name is Carson. Thank you for filling in the blanks. Has it occurred to you that Hardie Markham raised Levi Markham's children after Sarah died. At least it seems he raised William J. and Fidelia. William J. was 3 when Sarah died. Hardie was Levi's son from his first wife, Lotia Massey. Hardie was about 20 years older than William. Do you have any information regarding this? I would love to know the story behind all that. It happened after the civil war and I imagine things were difficult. Sarah's first husband died in the civil war. Her father, Davis Chisenhall, seems to have cut her out of the will, but provided for Hardie, who lived with him. What happened to Lotia Massey. Why didn't Levi raise his own children? It is all very interesting and I would love to know the answers.
