Searching for the parents of Elizabeth Marquis born abt 1800 in NC. She married William Rodgers in 1819 in Posey Co. IN.
The only Marquis listed during that time in 1820 was William and James. In 1830 a James, Solomon, Wm Sr., Wm Jr. are listed. In 1840 William, Samuel, Thomas William A. In Vanderburgh Co. a John is living next do to Elizabeth and William Rodgers. In 1850 John is listed as 52 born in NC. I am thinking that maybe John was Elizabeth's brother.
The oldest Marquis male I could find was William. He is listed on the 1850 Posey Co. census # 701 as age 82 born in NC living with Mary age 65 born NC. Also other Marquis families listed are #706 Solomon age 50 NC,# 703 Nicy 37 KY and # 700 P.G. 26 NC
As for the Rodgers family I found in 1830 posey Co. A Isom and William and in Vanderburgh Co. a William. In 1840 A Rhodes Rodgers is living close to William Rodger and John Marquis. I believe that Rhodes maybe a brother to William.
Children of William and Elizabeth are: Nancy b. abt 1820 m. William Ritchey Mary b. abt 1822 m. William Leister Rhodes b. abt 1831 m. Louisa Jane Marquis Solomon b. abt 1833 m. Eva, she was born in Germany Leny? b. abt 1836 Martha J. b. abt 1838 All children born in Indiana
Does anyone have information on these families? Thank you Reynda
