Tamer Narcissus Hindman is my great grandmother.Her given name has been spelled Tamer, Tamar and Taman.Best information is that her father was a John Hindman who died in 1866, probably in Kansas, but I have been unable to confirm.
Tamer's mother married a Wilcox and they are believed to have obtained land grants in Iron Town, Missouri.I could not locate an Iron Town in Missouri and I am speculating that this may be Ironton or some variation.
John Hindman has been associated with a Lara Amey Baggalsa, however, there is also no confirmation that this was my second great grandmother.I traced the source of this name to a Sidebottom genealogy report distributed at Sidebottom reunions some time ago.The source of the information was Louie Churchill Sidebotham who may have obtained it from court records.I have drawn a complete blank on the surname Baggalsa in any search.Luckily, a second cousin once removed has ordered the marriage certificate which may shed some light on this anomoly.
However, under the theory that John's father was a James Hindman, an alternative to the James Henderson Hindman theory is the James Leech Hindman theory which is also being considered.
I am interested in learning the basis for your variations of the Hindman name you presented for Tamer and whether or not and/or how we might be related.E-mail response welcome and encouraged.
