I am excited to hear that you have so much Cage information, and hope you may be able to help me.I have a friend who descends from the Cage family and provided me with the following information:
Cage Family of Woodville, MS, Wilkinson County
Father:William Cage Mother: Amelia Hays
(Probably died before the Civil War)
Adelaide – Born 1836Died 1869Age 33 Margaret Lizzie Carrielle (Elizabeth)Died Jan. 24, 1880 Fanny (Frances) AmeliaDied of child birth
WilliamDied in horse accident AndrewDied of T.B. on ship at sea OliverDrummer boy in Union Army
Harry Hays (Amelia Hays Cage’s brother) sent the five daughters to convent school in Philadelphia after parents died.
After the Civil War:
Adelaide married Jules Lambert and moved to New Orleans.She had a daughter, Louisa Mary (Mary Louise) who was born July 10, 1859 and died June 13, 1927.*
Margaret became a nun, but later left the order.
Lizzie married Charles Woodward, Jr. of Cincinnati.
Fanny married ? Thorne of St. Louis.
Oliver moved to the Black Hills.
*Mary Louise Lambert married George August Heinrich Freund and had 12 children.
The only one of these family members that she found in the census was Adelaide, who was living with Jules Lambert in 1860.She was listed as mullato, so it is possible there was some black blood somewhere along the line.Is this family familiar.
