I have posted several times before with no responses. I may have a better chance now that I have new information.
I am looking for a HENRY LANTRUM or LANTON b. ca 1810. Uknown where or who he married and where. He had a son I know of and that's Joseph b. 1842 possible TN. Pension says he knows many people in Al GA and TN and family record says they had a line in MS. Unknown who at this time.
I find on the 1850 TN census index 2 families living together apparntly ones wife has died. Someones mother apparently is also in household. It very possibly this could be my line as the Henry age and Joseph age fits mine.
It has listed:
LANTON,Thos 41, Charlotte 25,Geo M. 7, Lucinda A 5, Mourning 77, Henry 44, Joseph 8, Martha J 4 Henry Gardner 27, T T Ru-94-310
My line, joseph b 1883 is spelled lanthrum becuase of my grandmothers changing the spelling. His father Joseph b. 1842 was spelled Lantrum on everything we've located on him except for the 1870 TN census wher we found him it was spelled LANTRON. But it was stated on thepension file that his father Henry was also Lantrum. Now above I find the Lanton census that very well could be him.
