Hello Susan,I am trying to find out if the Mary GIVENS listed as widow, age 65 in the Beaver, Pike county, Ohio 1880 census is my great, great grandmother. I would like to know if you have any further info on this family I found on the census listed below since you are of GIVENS descent;
1880 Beaver, Pike county, OHIO CENSUS
Charles GIVENS (Head) age 29 born Ohio, Wife, Nancy A. GIVENS age 24 born Ohio, Daughter, Nettie V. GIVENS age 2 born Ohio, Mother, Mary GIVENS age 65 (widow) born 1815 Ohio. also in the home was a laborer named William BRAMER age 21 born KY.
The Mary GIVENS I am searching for was also born 1815 in Ohio. Her maiden name we believe was COREY. She was married to William Wesley GIVENS born 1808 Virginia according to census records. She and her husband, William seem to disappear after the 1860 census in Missouri where some of their children were born. One of their sons, William Wesley GIVENS jr married in Bourbon county Ks, and died in Payne county OK. He (William jr) also had a brother named Charley who died young. Just searching for any leads on those two (William & Mary GIVENS) If you have any info on the Mary GIVENS listed with her son Charley on the 1880 census for Pike county I would appreciate it.
