Need information about the Joseph Kitching and his family listed in the 1870 census in Mount Vernon Township. Joseph was 55, blind, born in Tennessee and was a minister of the Christian Church. Wife Sarah was 40 and also born in Tennessee. Children in the household were James A., age 18; Martha, 13; Martha A, 13; Mary F., 12; and Nancy C., 10 and were all born in Tennessee.
There was also a daughter Tennessee, born about 1851 in Arkansas who married William H. Dunn in 1869. William may be related to Valentine Dunn.
Daughter Nancy married Harrison Orman in 1879. She was listed as Candice Kitching in the Posey County marriage records. Harrisonand "Kansas" were livingin the household of Mary Orman in 1880. Harrison's relationship is not identified but he is most likely her son. A Carri Kitchen, age 50 is listed as boarder in Mary Orman's household and is probably Candice's mother.
This Joseph Kitching may be a related to Martha Kitching Strum, wife of Jacob Strum of Posey County.
Any information on the Kitching family will be greatly appreciated.
