Looking for any info on Theophlous MCVAY. He was married to Manda
DURHAM. He is probably the son of Hugh B. MCVAY, if so he was born in
Lawrence County, AL in 1837. Then the family moved to Franklin County,
AL between 1848 and 1850. Theo. and Manda had atleast one son, Sidney
Albert born in 1873. Sidney was in Colbert Co, AL in 1900 and Lee Co,
MS in 1910 and 1920.
I have now been told that Sidney Albert was married at least three times.
