I found this listed on genforum, so I apologize if it's not 100% accurate.
1850 Owen Co Census (KY)
John Warner 64 yrs PA
Rhoda 63 yrs
Thomas 10 yrs
George 12 yrs
Mary Brooks 6 yrs
Lucinda Brooks 4 yrs
I believe Lucinda and most likely Mary to be the children of Benjamin or Ben James Brooks born in VA, and Katherine Warner born in Owen Co KY. Lucinda married Sidney Swetnam in Owen Co. I think Mary might have also gone by Hannah Brooks. I'm just checking to see if anyone can connect the Warner and Brooks families. I looked at the 1850 census index, and it doesn't list any Brooks families. Any ideas or information would be appreciated. I'm sorry if this is a repeat -- I had surgery this week, and I can't remember if I've already posted this question/info. Thanks. ~ Mary
I'm looking for a marriage record of William Boyd Short, married to
Caroline Wariner or Warren. Their only child, Charles McPherson Short.
On Charles death certificate it mentions his parents names.. The closest
that I can figure out that William probably got married in the late
60's but no later then 1872, because that's when Charles McPherson Short
I have not been able to place William Boyd Short on the 1870 census. So
I want to think that he was married after 1870 but no later then 1872.
Remember Charles was born in 1872.
If you happen to have a marriage record book on hand could you please
check the index. for William Boyd Short and Caroline Wariner or Warren.
