Hello William! My name is Patricia Ann (Wyrick) Stevinson and my mother is a Hosey.Her father was Samuel Earl Hosey b.1893 in Arlington KY to Isaac David Hosey b. 1861 in TN and Carrie Shoemaker b.1863.Isaac David (also known as Stephen Isaac David Hosey) was the son of Stephen Anderson Hosey b. 9 Nov 1838 in Hardin Co., TN.
I am not sure if any of this family line appeared in your book, but if so, I would love to get a copy.In your research, did you ever find Isaac & Carrie Hosey and their children?I say children, because according to Samuel's obituary, he had 1 sister and 2 brothers, but since the 1890 census burned, I have been unable to locate their names, d.o.b.,etc.Family story has it that when Carrie died, an aunt from St. Louis took the girl.I do not know what happened to the two boys, but since Samuel was so small, he stayed with Isaac.Isaac and Samuel lived with Isaac'sgrandmother Mary Brooks.
Does any of this ring a bell with you and your research?
