Note: w it is only about twelve mile to his home. The only times I remember going to visit were a couple of times a few of us went over there on a flat bed truck for a picnic. I remember a few times that Uncle Finis and Aunt Viola would row a boat across the Tennessee River and then walk up to Grandpa's house.

Parents Milard Lindsey and Minnie Lindsey, Address Earl, Ark. License and Certificate on 13 Dec 1931. Marriage Rites on License Book list Sam E. Ashmore, Pastor Methodist Church, but the original License (in my possession..dfw) list Sam E. Ashmore, Minister M.E. Ch. So. The courthouse book page even writes out thirty seven, but the original license writes out Thirty one. The number itself could be 1931 or 1937. If it were 1931 Finis would be 40 yr. 1 mo. old and Viola would be one week short of being 21 yr. old. If it were 1937, Finis would be 46 yr. 1 month old and Viola would be one week short of 27 years. Neither match the years of BOTH Finis and Viola. Virginia, oldest daughter of Finis and Viola was of the age that the 1931 date should be correct. ----- 1900 United States Federal Census Name: Phinies Wood [Finis Wood], Residence : Precinct 14 Chapel, Lauderdale, Alabama. hh102/102, SD8ED62SH6A, pg.5435, 13 Jun 1910C, Laud.
