My gg-grandmother Susan was married to a Dock Kearse. Throughout the years, their last names were spelled many different ways. She died in 1934, in Jesup, wayne county and Dock and Retha Died in 1936 in the same county. They are African-American. On her death certificate they have her name spelled Sussie Kearse. Dock was also known as B.P and he was born in South Carolina, which I am not sure of which county or town. He also had a brother named Hasty. My great grandmother was married to a speaks before she married Dock and she bore 4 children by Samuel Speaks. If any of this information rings a bell let me know please, I've been on a desperate search to find anyone who knows them.
