The following families appear in the Parke Co, IN 1850 census:
Jacob Boose 46 b. Penn Susan 36 OH John A. 16 IN Martha J. 14 IN Hannah 12 IN Eliza 10 IN Charity 9 IN Susan 1 IN
John Boose 51 (57?) VA Fanny 46 KY Minerva 17 IN Mariah 16 IN Louisa 15 IN John 15 IN William H. 12 IL Sarah 10 IL Martha 8 IL Thomas 7 IL
Henry Boose 55 PA Elizabeth 51 PA (nee Blackman) Martha 17 IN Henry 16 IN Elizabeth 10 IN(aka Mary Elizabeth) James Cathern (?)12 IN (it appears that Cathern or similar is his surname)
William H. Boose 25 IN (s/o Henry & Elizabeth Blackman Boos above)) Elizabeth 25 IN (d/o John & Fanny Boose?) Henry 1 IN
Joseph Selby 26 VA July Ann 25 IN (d/o Henry & Elizabeth Blackman Boos) Elizabeth 4 IN Hannah 2 IN Elizabeth Wilson 22 IN
Some of these families later used the spelling Boos.
Henry & Elizabeth (Blackman) Boos moved to Johnson Co., IO shortly after 1850.
Joseph and Juliana (Boos) Selby moved to IO about 1852 and to St. Louis, MO during the Civil War.William H. & Elizabeth Boos died in Kingfisher Co, OK.
My line is (Mary) Elizabeth Boos Spangle, d/o Henry & Elizabeth (Blackman) Boos(e).
I am trying to determine(1) if Jacob, John and Henry were brothers (or related) (2) parents of Henry.There is a family tradition that Henry was born in Rockbridge Co, VA, but the 1850 census indicates his PoB as PA.
I have more information to share and would love to exchange information with anyone researching any of these families.
