I was originally looking for William McCluskey in Ripley Co.Do you have any info as to Nancy & Ambrose's kids?I'm now looking towards the Issac McCluskey family, found in the Shannon Co. MO 1880 census, Pine Creek Twp.These folks went from there, and wound up in Randolph CO Ar in the latter half of that decade.Many of the girls married Hanes/Haynes men in Randolph Co.Here is the Shannon Co Census:
Issac, 63, SC, Ire, Ire Martha A. (maiden name Holland), 57, AL, GA, KY Charity R., 28, MS, SC, AL Martha H., 22, MO, SC, AL Nancy E., 18, MO, """" Lucinda C., (went by Sinda), 17, MO, """" Harriett J., 15, AR, """" Issac J.H., 13, AR, """"
I am hoping this family had an older son named William, as by 1880, he was already deceased.
Do you know there is a McCluskey family cemetery in Ripley Co?I just found that out, you may want to check on that, maybe it will help!
