HI, I am wondering if anyone has information about the Debord family traits and would be willing to share it. I have names and birth / death dates. I would like to get some personal history such as occupation, skills (play a muscial instrument, physical discription, i.e. tall, etc.
I am a decendant of Bolen Hare (b 1811) and Mary O. Debord (b 1812) daughter of George W. Debord (b 1773) and Granddaughter of James Debord 1755-1829.
I know that James Debord was a farmer as I have a copy of his estate. It was interesting to see that Bolen Hare and Mary O. Debord made some purchases at the auction of the estate of James Debord, Mary's Grandfather,in 1829, several years prior to their marriage in 1834.
From Civil War enlistment records of Princevill Ill, I know the sons of Bolen were tall for the time. One was 6' while another was 6'2". A Debord cousin, Jefferson Deborn, who enlisted at the same time was 5'11 1/2".
