==========================================================================================
General Notes: Husband - H Marshall HONEA
==========================================================================================

HORNEY, HARNEY, HANEY, HONEY, HONEA are all possibilities for this surname.

==========================================================================================
General Notes: Wife - Amanda MILLS
==========================================================================================

I found a marriage record in Nac for Amanda MILLS to H Marsill HORNEY, 28 Aug 1891, but
no more records for Marsill and Amanda (nor Mashall or Marcel). Ira/Arrie's death
certificate lists his name as Morris.

In 1900, Mandy and Dixie MILLS are living with Anna and James PIERCE, her sister. There
is also a John MILLS who may be John Hiram, Alvy's son. According to the 1900 census, she
was married 8 years (1892), then in 1930, she was widowed.

I found a marriage record in Nac for Amanda MILLS to R C CLIFTON, 5 Aug 1903, but I find
no other entries for R C and Amanda.

There is a Mandy HONEY (age 60) on the 1910 Census in Laneville with a 17 year old
daughter named Dixie HONEY.

In 1920, Mandy MILLS is living with Arrie and JG CLIFTON and their two children, listed
as mother-in-law. Dixie isn't with them. In 1930, Arie and Jack CLIFTON are still in Nac
with six children.

The obit has her listed incorrectly as Ira's mom. I found no Ira MILLS with Amanda as his
mother so I am assuming this is my Ira and his sister.

If Mandy is buried at Crim's Chapel, it is either an unmarked grave or she has a
different last name. Her county death record is under Amanda MILLS and reported by Ruben
ARMSTRONG, Ira's son-in-law, my grandpa. Our Mandy was living with Ira on 11 Apr 1930 for
the census. Her death certificate was signed by IRA Mills of Henderson and lists her
parents as J M MILLS and Martha ALDRIDGE and says she was divorced.

Did she marry a Mills? There is a Mills family in Panola county at the same time and
using the same given names but not connected [yet] to our guys.

Taking all these bits and pieces, I believe our Mandy married Marsill/Morris
HORNEY/HARNEY/HANEY/HONEY/HONEA in 1891 and probably divorced [or separated from] him
around 1900. She has at least one daughter, Ira/Arrie, possibly two - Dixie. Arrie
married the CLIFTON. My dad told me we are related to some Cliftons through his mom and
this could be that link. Are Arrie and Dixie the same person? If they aren't, where was
Arrie for the 1900 Census?

My Notes
==========================================================================================

If there is no SOURCE, I have no PROOF! If the source is a person, the information is HEARSAY.

It has taken me 15 years to puzzle out what happened to Amanda. I believe this is our Mandy
but I cannot guarantee it.
