Searching for TOM SEXTON who married MINNIE STEENFOTT. They lived in New River, Scott Co.,Tennessee as early as October 1911 and as late as February 1920. I just discovered this link so I don't have detailed information or firm dates on either of them, but as near as I can calculate she was probably born in the late 1800's. She was raised in California and they may have resided there early in their marriage. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Please contact me at Thank you, Cindy
