Looking for info on the family of Larkin D. Rumsey and Margaret Taylor. They were married in AL on 19 Sep 1856, and had a daughter Sarah S. Rumsey in 1858.
Margaret was born approx 1836-8 in GA. Larkin Rumsey was born 1833 in GA.
In 1850 census, Margaret was living with her family in DeKalb County, AL. Parents were Jeremiah & Charlotte Taylor.
In 1860 census, Margaret & Sarah are living with Jeremiah Taylor in St. Clair. Presumably moved back home with her family while Larkin went off to the Civil War.
In the 1870 census, Larkin, Margaret, and Sarah are living in St. Clair County.
Margaret died 14 July 1876 in Gadsden, AL; newspaper says "she leaves a husband and afflicted daughter to mourn her loss" Any idea what the word "afflicted" refers to? Sarah would be about 18 at the time of her mother's death. I don't know when/where Sarah died.
Larkin died 19 April 1878.
Land records show Jeremiah buying 80 acres in March 1860 in Etowah County. If it's the same Jeremiah born in 1792-3, he'd be 68 at the time he bought the land.
Anybody know what became of Sarah? Where in GA did they come from?
Jeremiah Taylor was born 1792-3 in SC -- anybody know where? He moved to GA (where Margaret was born), and then on to St. Clair County, AL. Would like to know the dates and actual places.
Would especially like to learn more about Larkin Rumsey -- where he came from, who his parents/siblings were, etc.
