Looking for information regarding Applegate Goodwin. He married Isabel Thomas (daughter of William Thomas) April 1835 in Hancock Co. Applegate, Isabel and children Melissa, James, Andrew, and Mary Ann are shown on the 1850 Hancock Co. Brandwine Township census.
Applegate was born abt 1813 and according to the 1850 census he was born in Ohio.
Applegate Goodwin held a patent from the government for 40 acres in Hancock County, dated March 20, 1837.In addition, he purchased an additional 40 acres from an individual in 1840.On May 2, 1843, Applegate sold the second parcel to another individual and on June 16 of the same year sold his original patent to Ezekiel Thomas (a brother of his wife, Isabel Thomas). In 1846 he purchased another 40 acres in the county and this was probably his home at the time of the 1850 census.Records of sale of this propety have not been discovered.He has not been found in any subsequent census records.
I have been unable to find out any other information regarding Applegate.I do not know his parents, when he died, if he died in Hancock County, etc.I found Isabel in Iowa I believe in either 1870 or 1880 with one of her children.
Does anyone have any information regarding Applegate, his parents, the place of his death, his death date. etc. Any information would be appreciated.
