Noah and Carrie Atchley were my husband Roger's grandparents...that was one of the first steps I took 15 years when I first got interested in genealogy. I knew who Noah's parents were and I 'knew' who Carrie's parents were without a doubt in my mind....until this week!!! I have had census records as a portion of my documentation for years now...on Carrie, I had the 1910, 1920 and 1930 records. This week I acquired a copy of the 1900 census and I was so excited...until I looked closer and realized that she was listed as JAMES GIBSON's cousin NOT HIS DTR.!!!Upon further investigation, I believe that Eliza, who lives with her husband in 1900 next door to the Gibsons, is in fact Carrie's sister and therefore, also a cousin to James who I had thought was their father.His parents are listed as both born in Tennessee and he was born in Missouri, his wife was born in Indiana.Carrie and Eliza's father is listed as having been born in Tenn. and their mother in missouri.
Anybody got any answers for me?I haven't found enough info on James to ascertain whether or not his family was still around in missouri in 1900.
