Looking for other folks who have Frank LOUT and Jennie COKER as their ancestors. Frank was born in November 1851 in Shelby County, the son of Bailey LOUT and Mary MANNING. He married Jennie COKER in 1874 in Shelby County. Jennie was born in May 1849 (location unknown, parents unknown).      Frank and Jennie had at least 9 children, including Mary Frances LOUT, my husband's great-grandmother. Mary married John Richard ADAMS on July 4, 1898 in Shelby County. Where and when did Frank and Jennie pass away, and where are they buried?   I -know- there's a BUNCH of Louts and Adams' from Shelby County-let's share family info. Thanks!
