Records show that my gggrandfather, William Wesley Moore, and one or
more of his brothers (Newton, Harvey and Aris Marshall are three of
them) enlisted in the Civil War and named Sumner, Lawrence Co. as their
residence. William W. lived in Hancock Co. at the time and I believe the
other brothers either lived in Hancock or Adams Co. Is there any
explanation or info as to why they would have claimed to live in Sumner?
Thanks for the help.
Looking for information re: my grandfather Charles Harvey. He was born
February 5, 1883 in Lawrence Co., IL. His parents were John and Mollie
(Brown) Harvey. John Harvey was born at Sandridge, IL and buried at
Dollard Graveyard near Pinkstaff, IL. Mollie (Brown) Harvey is buried in
a churchyard at Sandridge. Charles Harvey had a half sister Mrs. Bessie
Peters of Dexter, MO. and a half-brother named Clarence Harvey of Poplar
Bluff, Mo. Any information provided is greatly appreciated!!.
My gg-grandmother was Samantha Adeline Hays (1848-1924) of Bridgeport.
Her father was a doctor named Samuel. A Dr. Samuel Hays is mentioned in
the 1910 Lawrence Co. History book, but it only states that he was the
first physician and dentist in the Bridgeport area.
I have the following info from the 1860 census for Christy Twp., but no
obvious Samantha -- unless she's Emaline or Nancy!
1860 Lawrence Co Christy twp
Hayes, Samuel 48 Phy OH
John 22 OH
Mary 21 OH
Eliza 18 OH
Emaline 16 OH
Nancy 12 OH
Charles 9 OH
Could someone with an 1870 census please look up this family? Samantha
wouldn't be listed, since she married George Tromly in 1866. However,
it may provide more info about where the Hays come from.
I'm assuming that they wouldn't be in the 1850 census, if Charles was
born in Ohio and is 9 in 1860 -- but if anyone could verify this, that
would be great!
Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.
