In the 1860 Census, Knox County, Widner Township,P.O.Oak Station, Page 38, ##259-259 the following are listed:
Russel Light, 55, b. Georgia Mary Light, 58, b. North Carolina Perry Wagoner, 12, b. Ohio Elizabeth Light, 18, b. Indiana Abraham Hollingsworth, 56, b. South Carolina Mary Hollingsworth, 44, b. Ohio John M. Hollingsworth, 21, b. Indiana Russel B. Hollingsworth, 18, b. Indiana Mary J. Hollingsworth, 16, b. Indiana Abraham W. Hollingsworth, 13, b. Indiana Amanda Hollingsworth, 5, b. Indiana Margaret J. Wagoner, 18, b. Ohio Samuel Wagoner, 9 b. Indiana Daniel Wagoner, 8, b. Indiana Jeremiah Edwards, 13, b. Indiana
I am trying to find out just how these people fit together. The Margaret J.WAGONER is my gg-grandmother, she married Martin Gilbert ROBERTS in Knox County.Her mother is Mary CHANCE WAGONER HOLLINGSWORTH, widow of Philip Wagoner. I need to know if any of the HOLLINGSWORTH children listed on the census are Mary's children or all of them step-children?I understand that Mary LIGHT's maiden name was HOLLINGWORTH, what is her relationship if any, with Abraham HOLLINGSWORTH?Next question, who is Jeremiah EDWARDS and how does he fit in with these families?
I would love to share information about these families.I am especially interested finging anyone who is a descendant of the ChANCE-WAGONER Family.
