I've discovered a bit of a mystery in regards to someone who is listed on a census record along with my g-g-grandparents.They are Warner Willis Snyder and Ida J. Armstrong Snyder, who founded the town of Bumble Bee in Arizona.Ida's sister was the widow of King S. Woolsey and so they knew him well.I had a great-uncle that was named after him, King Woolsey Hardy.
On the 1880 Arizona census record for W.W. Snyder and Ida Snyder, there is a K.W. Carothon listed.Well, I figured out that it's actually..."King Woolsey Cawthorn".Now it was assumed by an earlier generation that Ida had been married to a Cawthorn in Georgia before marrying W.W. Snyder.However, I cannot find any documentation on any marriage nor any Cawthorn in Georgia at that time.The census record for 1880 indicates he was born in 1876, his age is listed as 4 years old and that he was born in Georgia.
I did find a census record for a King W. Cawthorn in North Carolina in 1920 and his age matches to 1876 and that his birthplace was Georgia.His parent's birthplaces on that census indicates that they both were from Georgia.So I guess I could assume that this K.W. Cawthorn is the son of Ida Snyder as well, but something about it doesn't seem right.If he is indeed a son of Ida, then I would like to include this in my family tree.
