Classification: Query
Surnames: Soward, Legate, Hicks, Garner
Catherine Roda Soward Legate, b. 1836 in Tennessee to William Soward and Mary Manning. She filed a claim for a Civil War Widow's Pension. The file on Catherine's claim lists two of her sisters who provided information. Mary E. (Soward) Garner b. abt 1841 and sister Malinda E (Soward) Hicks b. abt 1844 provide affadavit saying that they were present at their sister Catherine's wedding to Alfred Legate, in Independence County, Arkansas. Samuel S (not G) Garner signed as a witness (apparently husband of Mary). The affidavit is from 1894, and both Mary and Malinda are living in Sharp, Independence, Arkansas. The pension file was obtained from the National Archives. Wondering if anyone knows anything about Malinda Soward Hicks?
