I am looking for information about my ggg grandparents.
James H.(Harry?) Netherton Born: Aug abt 1857 in Kentucky (possibly Lexington)Census records show both of his parents were born in KY as well.
He moved to Vigo Indiana before 1880, he showed up there on the 1880 census.
He married: Elizabeth Jane Owens born: March abt 1860 in Indiana. Census records say both of her parents were born in Indiana as well.
They had 7 children together: Theodore Voris James Harrison Willam Robert Claude Guy Gilbert Nancy Bessie
I was originally searching for him under the name of Henry or Harry Netherton because that is what he was named as on the 1880,1900,1910 and 1930 census. However I located the marriage records for his sons Guy, William and James which gave his name as James H or Harry Netherton and their mother as Lizzie or Elizabeth Jane Owens. I have located a marriage record for a Harry Netherton and Elizabeth Owens Sept. 24 1884. I suspect that he went by his middle name of Harry rather than James.
I have not been able to tie this branch of Nethertons in with any other that I have seen so far. I am having trouble finding James H's parents. I located a James H on the 1860 census living in Kentucky with parents of:
R.T Netherton Born abt. 1831 in KY (matches what I know of James's fathers birthplace)
Rebecca E. Born abt 1834 (matches what I know of James's mother's birthplace)
Abner V (wondering if its 'Voris' which is the middle name of one of James's children)
James H (possibly my relative except it gives a birthyear of 1854 instead of 1857)
William R (James H also had a son with this name)
If anyone could help me I would appreciate it. I am pretty sure this is the right parentage for James based on name similarities. If anyone could help tie in this family to the rest of the Nethertons that would be AWESOME.
I also am not sure what R.T stood for. I think it may have been Robert?
