I'm hunting high and low for any information. My ancestors were found in 1850 in the Frederick County, MD Census...later in both 1856 and 1860 found in Iowa City, Iowa.
Mary E. Fisher - b. 1800 - VA
Jackson Fisher - b, 1830 (1833 - varies) - MD
Madison Fisher - B - 1831 MD
Virginia Fisher - B - 1842 - MD
John T. Fisher - b - 1840 - MD
I think John T. stayed in Iowa and married a Nellie UNK
Madison ended up in Chicago married to Carrie UNK
Jackson (my great grandfather) - went to California where he signed up with the California 100- fought in the Civil War and died a prisoner at Andersonville.
So what I'm looking for is one - any wagon train from MD to Iowa (I see other Marylanders on the census)...two - Iowans who left and went to California... three - the wives of John T. .and Madison and four - what happened to Mary E.
Thanks for any help.
Are there explanations online for what the different catagories on
the census mean? I'm trying to determine more about the people listed
in Nancy Kimes's household:
1854 census: Big Grove Twp, Johnson Co, IA
PG LN NAME MALES FEMALES VOTERS MILITIA TOTAL
2 2 Kimes Nancy 3 2 2 2 5
In 1854, only males could vote (correct?)... so how old did one have
to be to be eligible to vote?
And the Militia heading??? 2 males of at least how old?
Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
