John Stephen Bethea married Nora A. and the children Mary and Allen These children are not Nora and John's children only John's and another wife. Nora was 18 yrs old in the 1910 census of culmberland county. I know he had 1 wife[ possiably 2] other wifes other than Nora Ann Skipper. They [John & Nora] had 3 sons Raymond, Allen and Tracy [my father]. They were put up for adoption some years later. Tracy was a very small child. He was adopted by a family named Martin. Raymond was killed- no children; Allen had 1-son, 1- girl; and Tracy had 2- boys, 3 girls
