Captain John NORRIS, captured in SC, during civil war-by Confederates-the father-in-law, of one of my GreatAunts, Maggie LARMAN, daughter of Henry LARMAN- -UNION-DC.


Those who wish to check the 1880 fed census taken in Washington DC, will find one of my GreatGGrandfth's family's record.  The only daughter of his not with his last name is one of my GreatGrandfth's sister, Maggie LARMAN-NORRIS, apparently she and her husband did not live together, and this was probably in some way connected with the Civil War.

As far as all my investagations, Maggie and her husband Calvin Christopher Columbus NORRIS, had only one son. BTW, Calvin C.C. J. NORRIS, died in Takoma Park, MD-I think he lived to be abt 80. Anyway he is listed on the 1930 fed census taken I think they may had claimed that area in takoma Park, was DC, at that time- it run's into two counties and on some records is under DC.

Maggie died in DC, in 1911.
