    Appears to be the one m. Dillie O'Neal in Wayne Co. Marriages.
  2. Joseph Shelton Todd b. Jan 1892; m. Leila Barton
    Leila's maiden name comes from her son's obituary. The obit is fairly recent, so out of respect to the family and to protect the privacy of living relatives, I'm not going to link to it.
  3. Cynthia Leona b. May 1893
  4. David Melton b. Jan 1895, d. 18 Jun 1965; m. Carrie M.
    It appears he had a second wife named Marie. Her 1930 entry indicates that she was 21 at her first marriage, and she was 29 years old, so it'd been 8 years since she first married; David M. was 22 at his first marriage and he was 35 in 1930, making it 13 years since he first married.
m. abt 1900 (2) Mrs. Emma Wilks (or Wilkes). Her daughter, Annie Wilks was living in Solomon's household in 1910 and is indicated as his stepdaughter.

Claudius M. b. Jun 1866
m. Samantha (Waters) Duffield b. 16 Dec 1872, d. 6 Dec 1924. (death certificate)

She was the daughter of Cynthia Todd and William Duffield. It appears her mother bore her out of wedlock before she married James W. Waters. See her mother's entry at Children and grandchildren of William E. Todd.
