Hello, Thanks for your response.I have family info that Francis M. and Sarah Abney are the parents of my husband's great grandfather, Julius Henry Abney, but I have not ever been able to find him on a census in this household or even on his own before 1900. Things are furthur complicated by the fact that his age is never the same on any document I find and I believe he may have fudged his age a little to make himself younger when he married.
My question is this do you know if Frank and Sarah had a first child (daughter) named JULIA?On the 1860 census there is a child listed by this name as a daughter, but I have not been able to find anything furthur on her. The fact that I cannot find Frank and Sarah on the 1870 census also complicates things. I have wondered if perhaps the enumerator mistook the name and Julia is actually Julius and a son not daughter.
