Personal Information    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name Kesiah E. Shelton 
    Born 1820  Maury Co, Tennessee Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Gender Female 
    Died 12 Aug 1849  Lauderdale Co, Alabama (maybe) Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Found an Ancestry tree that gives her death date as 12 Aug 1859 in Lauderdale, Alabama, same date as David Levi's birth. However, the 1850 census shows John J. Cody married to Syrena and the tree gave a marriage date to Syrena as 1849, though I did not find it to verify it. Dates just don't mesh. Keziah must have died before 1850. Perhaps the 1859 is a typo for 12 Aug 1849??? but Alabama?
    Research Notes 2 Feb 2014 
    • Found an Ancestry tree that gives date of death for Kesiah as 12 Aug 1859 in Lauderdale Co, Alabama and says Syrena married him in Dec 1849 in Alabama; and indeed she is shown as wife in 1850 Tennessee census at age 15. George W. was born in 1847, was 3 in 1850.
      Assumption is that Keziah died bet 1847 and 1849. Perhaps 12 Aug 1849 instead of 1859, a typo(?). But that only gives John a short window of time to marry Syrina.
      First child of Syrena was likely Nathan H. 1851
      David Levi's (b 1859) death record states his mother was Syrena.
      John Cody was buried in Alabama with a few other Cody members of his family, though he died in Tennessee; so perhaps they just went back and forth often. From Wayne county, TN to Lauderdale Alabama, the distance is only 34 miles; so that's a reasonable assumption.
