Classification: Query
Surnames: Washaux, Henderson, White, Turner

All African American
Mariah Washaux, b. AL, 45, widow, farm laborer
Alabama, b. AL, 12
Thomas B., b. AL, 8
Watten, son, b. AL, 5

It's going to be difficult to determine Mariah's maiden name because she was born a slave.

1900 Choctaw Co. AL
Flem Henderson, b. AL June 1868, M15yrs, farmer
Alabama, b. AL May 1868, 8/6 ch
John C., b. AL, 1888, farm laborer
Cession, son, b. AL, 1889, farm lab
Noley, dau, b. AL, 1891, farm lab
Vens__, dau, b. AL, 1893
Waller, son, b. AL, 1895
Maggie, b. AL, 1896
Beaslin, dau, b. AL, 1898
Mariah Mills, malaw, b. AL, 1834, widow

That's all that I found for Mariah.

Alabama didn't start to record deaths until 1908.

You'll find more African America records at African American, and African Americans in Choctaw County,

The Choctaw County Genealogical Society, might have her newspaper death notice.

1910 Choctaw Co.

I didn't find Alabama's death record. I'd look for it because if the Informant knew her parents names, they be on her death certificate.

I'd also look for her obituary. Her parents names might be in it. Successful Searching!
