Re: Charles Barnett TOLLIVER 1847 Columbus, Franklin, Ohio
I want thank you for all of the help, especially for the information on Barnett Toliver in the 113th Regiment Ohio Vol. Infantry.
Charles Barnett Tolliver would not have owned property in Columbus. His suspected father, Everett Tolliver / Tollover / Toliver did, so did his grandfather, Barnett Tolliver. I have deeds for them, as well for Everett’s brother Westwood Tolliver. In 1850 I have Bamey Talliver in the census at Ancestry.com. The indexer does not always get it right. I also have Edward Falison in the 1850 census in Columbus, Franklin, Ohio. Both families are in the Columbus 5th ward. I think that perhaps Everett Tolliver is the same person as Edward Tolliver. I just don’t have the family all tied together in any census from 1850 to 1870. I intend to read the census in Columbus page by page to pick up the Tollivers in 1860. I would like to either prove or disprove the existence of “Edward Falison.”
I can not find Edward Falison in the City Directory or in land or marriage records as filmed by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.I suspect that “Edward Falison” may be a butchering of his real name. That is one of the reasons I am going to track down the tax records for the time period from 1839 to 1870. Connected family surnames in Columbus include Sowers, Strother, and Foley. I did look at the online catalog at the Ohio Historical Society. Their tax records do not include the right time period. I think I may need to contact the County Auditor for Franklin County.
You have been very kind. Thank you again.
