James and Izetta (2nd generation) had at least twelve children and possibly thirteen. Carrie was born in February 1877 as was Olive ... accroding to records. I'm assuming they were twins unless they were the same person. They both had the same middle name .. Elizabeth. I find no further records of Olive after this but do find census records for Elizabeth Montgomery in 1881 and a birth certificate in 1943. She also may have died prior to the 1881 census. Whether there were 12 or 13 I only have been able to locate photos of three Carrie, Josephine and Moses this writers grandfather. These three were children of Izetta (pictured to the right) and James (pictured below)
