Hi Marjorie, You didn't include any dates, or approximate dates, in your query.You say all you know about Henry is his name and who he married.How about the birth year of one of their children?Something that will put them in a time frame.You want census info, but one needs to know something about Henry to look at census records.
I notice from your message history the only year you included in your Rhyne query was the census year of 1900 for that family.You should have month and year of birth of eveyone in that household from the 1900 census.I ask on this forum because you might get some help here -- if the wife, Maggie Rhyne, was born prior to 1880, and wasn't married until after 1880, you should be able to find her with her family on the 1880 census.The multi set of CDs for the the 1880 census includes an EVERYNAME index, which means you can search for the wife, children, or anyone living in the household.You could search for Maggie Rhyne when she was a child at home.Now, if you do not have access to that set, there are people on this forum who have their own set.Just post a query with subject that will catch their eye -- "Need 1880 census lookup".Give what info you have on Maggie, month and year of birth listed from that 1900 census, plus state of birth, willhelp to narrow the search.The name of Rhyne shouldn't be as common as Adams.Also, I noticed in your Rhyne query you spelled it Rhyne in the subject box, and Rhynes in the message.If her name is spelled various ways, include all spellings you know.
Oh, and you don't have to put your eddress out on the main page.Up where it says "Posted by" and your name is underlined, that is a link to your eddress.Just wait a few seconds for it to appear.Just another way GenForum tries to protect us against those spammers.Just below your eddress is your "message history", click on that and up will come a list of your postings.Helpful to see when we last posted on a site, or if we ever got around to posting on a particular site.

If you didn't know about the link to your email, you may not be familiar with the box "Search this site", in upper left side.If you visit the Adams forum, you can type in something like Texas, and up will come all the queries on Adams who have a TX connection.Or, Prestage, and if anyone includes that name in their query it will come up.Very helpful for those common surname sites. Have fun and Happy Hunting.
