John, Did I send you anything about Hiram Tansey? I thought I had replied to your post but don't see anything. I do have some information on this Hiram Tansey and Nancy Cutbirth. He's in:
1830 Morgan Co., IN, census 1840 Morgan Co., In census 1850 Morgan Co., Clay Twp., census 1870 Morgan Co. Census - Brown Twp., living with daugher Minerva J. Davidson and husband Jeptha. 1880 Fed. Census, Morgan Co., Brown Twp. living with son-in=law W. H. Carlisle and daughter RAchel.
Believe that Nancy and Hiram separated or divorced sometime after 1840. Nancy is found in 1850 census of Marion Co., IN, Warren Twp. and in 1860 Census of Marion Co., IN, Warren Twp. with Jesse and Rachel, also Elias N. Skinner and Mahalia Skinner - Nancy possibly working as domestic servant for them.In 1870 Nancy was living with dau. Rachel and William Carlisle. I've found no record of Nancy after that.
Hiram is possibly my gr. gr. grandfather, although I haven't proved that. He had a son Elijah Tansey, whom I believe married Caroline Kunkle, the mother of Andrew Tansey, my grandfather.Do you have any information on any of these people?Does this sound like the line you are researching?
