I am seeking information on Louisa Shipley and her two children Caroline and Francis who are living in Warren County, KY. She is found in the following census -
1860 Census they (Louisa and her two children) are with James & Margaret Grimes in Warren Co., KY 1870 Louisa is alone in Metcalfe Co., KY with a Huffman family (if this is her) 1880 Louisa is living in Warren Co., KY with her son Francis and his family
Louisa b. ca 1820 TN, Eastern TN, or KY Children: 1. Caroline Victoria b. ca 1849 KY (may have married John Higdon Lewis in MO) 2. Francis Marion b. ca 1853 m. Alice N. Lewis Children: 1. Caroline V. b. ca 1878 2. Wade H. b. Jul 1879 3. Minnie b. ca 1877
I have seen family trees with Louisa's maiden name listed as Elsea and Lowery, but I believe both of these to be incorrect, as family members and places she is in censuses don't match.
What I would like to know most is her maiden name. I am hoping she might be our James Grimes sister. Dates and places are good for this but I am unable to find very much information about her.
