Before my great-grandmother, Minerva Brown Wade, passed away, she told me her grandmother's surname was Palmer, which helped in my research. Lambert also popped up on the census, as well as Wofford. Check out what I've uncovered so far as the mystery continues.
Here is the full 1870 Census where you will see the Lamberts as neighbors and possibly her future in-laws.
By the end of 1870, Minerva was list as "Manerva" when she married Spencer Lambert.
Ten years later in1880, Minerva "Nervie's" family expanded---a lot!
See Florence Washington, an aunt, but whose aunt?
