Can someone please help me, I'm trying to locate my family, someone gave me a 1850 census of Madison Township, Guernsey County, Ohio. The families I'm trying to locate is The Lukens and Adair's. Below is the listing I received. The next census that I was able to get was 1880 Princeton, Gibson County, Indiana. I'm missing 20 years, and the Lukens head of house (husband).
Visit No. 383 (Neighbors) Benjamin Berry(age 70) b. Ohio Mary Berry(58) b. Ohio Nancy Berry (25) b. Ohio Mary J. Berry (28) b. Ohio Rebecca Adair (15) b. Ohioposs. a servant or the Berry's were her guardian.
Visit No. 384 Henry Adair (23) b. OhioFarmer Samuel F. Adair (21) b. Ohio William A. Adair (18) b. Ohio **Rachel Lukens (26) b. Ohio**my ggg/grandmother **seeking her husband's name** widowed by 1880 Rebecca J. Lukens (7) b. Ohio md. Mr. Hulbert widowed by 1880 Hannah E. Lukens (4) b. Ohio Millard H. Lukens (1) b. Ohio
Visit No. 385 George Adair (27) b. Ohio Mary A. Adair (29) b. Pennsylvania
Presuming Adair is Rachel Lukens maiden name, and listed with her and as neighbors, are her sibilings. But can't find Rachel and family from 1860-1870. Rachel was a widow by 1880 so was Rebecca J. Lukens her dau. Rebecca had a son listed with her in the 1880 census, his name was Henry E. Hulbert b. abt 1865, he was 16 years old. I know Rachel Lukens husband was still living in 1855 in Ohio because she had twin sons in Sept of that year. Their names were, David Way LUKENS** my gg/grandfather*** and Ray Fredrick LUKENS David was also known as Way by his family. He was listed as Way LUKENS on the 1880 census. But as David W. LUKENS, SR. in 1900 in St. Louis, MO. If anyone has any info on the Adair and or Lukens family listed here, I'd be extremely greatful if you were willing to share. And hopefully help me put to rest this hugh brick wall that I am slamming into.
