Good morning to th e list,
I'm off bone hunting as my aunt calls it. I found out last night that my
elusive grandfather and his family had lived in Long Eddy, so I checked the
1900 Hancock sure enough, what I haven't been able to find in over a year was
there in front of me, Josiah Stevens (not Joseph) is my ggrandfather he was
66 in 1900, Minnie his wife and James my grandfather are in District one.
There is listed in the family bible and Eli Josiah and Edith and Ennas
Stevens. On the census it says they have 3 living children. Finally a few
new clues!!! Does any one know of these folks? I have been posting info for
Joseph and Minnie, now I know Joseph should be josiah, maybe I'll get luck
and find a miracle.
Minnie remarried Ira Ward in 1914, so Josiah must have passed away between
1900-1914. Anyhelp would be wonderful
