In the 1850's there were a few families listed in the Livingston KY Census that had the last name Equells/Equalls.
One was a David & Martha Equells who had as of 1850 three children.. Elizabeth, Joseph & Nancy.By 1860 there may have been one more son, possibly with the name of Thomas.
By 1860...it appears that David & Marth died, and they went to live with a Louie & Martha Stephens.
The other family was (first name I can't make out) Equell (1850) 25 M & wife Marthy with one child named Mary who is 1.
They lived down the street from a family that also had a man named Silas who was 53 at the time.
In 1860..it looks like both sets of Equells family have died.Mary (who is now 10)went to live with my Aunt & Uncle...George W. & Cinthia Page and apparently one other Equells baby named Cinthia Equells 1 went to live with a Joseph & mary Motley?Can't quite make out the name.
I'm trying to find out information on Mary Equells who lived with my aunt & uncle.Whatever epedimic was going on might have hit my aunts family as well.I'm trying to find out what happened to the Pages and the Equells.They were apparently neighbors and good friends.
