Mary Louise

Sometimes it is one little detail that means the genealogical discovery for the day. In this document, their is a land transfer between Frederick Fincher Starnes (known as F. F. Starnes) and his wife Mary and their son, Thomas Mellon Starnes (known as T. M.) and his wife Elizabeth. The land lies on Anderson Creek, which is a contributory  stream to the Rocky River and runs through Midland in southwestern Cabarrus County.

The big deal to me about this document is that is names Mary L. Starnes middle name as "Louise". This is the first time I've seen what the L stood for. A simple thing and an addition to the family tree.
