It looks like Turner T. has been effectively eliminated as a possible daddy for my William Thomas ('Jesse') Lufsey (orginally LIVESAY?) b. abt. 1831 in Sussex County, VA based on the following information (thank you Sarah).
That leaves John LIVESAY who married Jane PARHAM on 22 DEC 1825 in Sussex County, VA.Anyone have anything on them?Anyone have another family group in Sussex County, VA that might be a possibility for my fellow?Any leads would be greatly appreciated. ----------------------------- Information from Sarah:
There are three men named Turner T. that I know of.
Drury Livesay and Frances Tucker had several children but we only know of three:
Turner T.b 13 Jan 1804 Pr Geo Cod 2 Oct 1847 Shelby Co TN
Martha A.b 1806
Drury Tuckerb ca 1815
Turner T. m Nancy G. (or Ann) Winfield in Sussex Co VA their children were:
1. Frances Ann (b. 1 July 1834, d. 18 Nov 1848 TN) 2. Turner T. (b 1840) m. 5 Feb 1868 in Surry Co VA Etta V. Wilborne.He d 20 Oct 1897 in MD and is buried there.Etta is buried at Blandford. 3. George W.b 1843 4. James Ab 1845
After the census of 1850 Nancy left Shelby Co, TN and returned to VA and then later moved with her children including Turner and his wife, Etta, to Baltimore MD.
I have more information about this family
Martha A Livesay (b. 1806) m. William W. Livesay (don't know who he is).He was b. about 1807.Martha d. 27 June 1854 in Pr Geo Co.Her death is registered in the Archives in Richmond.
Their children were:
1. Binns G. or T. (b. 1827, d. 22 June 1854) unmarried. 2.Turner (b. 1835) I thought that this Turner was the veteran but the information that I have says he was killed in Petersburg and was buried at Blandford Cemetery 10 June 1867. 3.Emeline T.b 1836mDrury Temple 4.Wm JamesbMay 1837mEldarine W.
