I'm trying to find other researchers/descendants of the Altsman family.James Madison Altsman (b. abt. 1846 IL or KY, s/o Andrew Altsman of KY) married Tennessee KIDD Graham in 1885 in VBC, AR.He's "missing" between 1870 (when he's found at age 24 in the household of his father in Independence Co., AR census) and his marriage in 1885.Was this his first marriage???What happened to his father, Andrew Altsman and step-mother Elizabeth?In 1860 this family was in Pemiscot Co., MO.Elizabeth was evidently a POWELL widow with a daughter, Caroline POWELL (age abt. 15) in the 1860 census.In the 1880 VBC census there is a William POWELL (age 45, TN) who has a sister, Caroline LAW (age 37, b. TN) living with him.......is this the same Caroline POWELL of the 1860 Pemiscot Co., MO census (places of birth of her and the mother are consistent---TN).Any help/hints/clues are greatly appreciated!!!Thank you.
