Just looking for some help in sorting out the Doves.
Is it possible that "Anna" Dove Smith is actually "Emma"? if so then she belongs to Basil Dove #2 below. Her siblings are: Barbarar Dove, Agness Dove, Jane Dove, Christine Dove, Albert Dove and Alfred Dove. Are any of these names familiar to you?

1) Bazel/Bazil Dove (black)b. 1824 in MS. The 1900 census lists him and his wife Francis and 2 sets of grandchildren. No Anna or Berthenia. Also no Charles.

2) Bassil Dove (black) b. 1835 in VA as well as his parents. Listed on the 1880 census married to Francis. Again no Anna, Charles or Berthenia.
