M is for Marbury

Dear Husband's maternal great grandmother was Mattie Marbury, born June 1892 in Texas.  Her parents were Thomas J. Marbury and Sallie P. Warren.  Thomas was born in the state of Arkansas, but we don't know where or who his parents were.

Mattie married Raymond Henderson in Bellville, Arkansas in 1913, and they were the parents of two children, Clio Lynn Henderson born in 1914 and Clara Gladys Henderson born in 1919.  The 1920 Census shows the family living Merry Green, Arkansas.   Mattie is listed as age 27, and Raymond, head of the household, was age 32.  Cleo was 5 years old and Clara was still under 1 year old.  The Census estimates her birth year as 1923, lists the birthplace as Texas, and both of her parents birthplace is listed as Arkansas.
Mattie died in July of that same year in Sheridan, Arkansas.

Mattie's Parents Thomas and Sallie were married September 23, 1888 in Yell, Arkansas.   They had three children:  Leanord, born 1890, Mattie, born 1892, and Henry born 1894.   Not much else is know about the  Marbury line of our family tree.
