Looking for initials more than what I have on C. Atherton born abt 1845 KY.Census 1850 KY listed males born around this time with initials.Can anyone help:Is he AEC Atherton; T.C. Atherton or someother initial? His first son (unknown wife) was named A.Edward/Edgar T. Atherton born abt 1869/1870 TN, according to the the 1880 census in Alcorn, Miss.He was in Miss living with second wife, Maranda Isbelle Honnell/Honnoll/Hunnell.
The family came to Grayson Cnty, TX 1880's where he lived most for the rest of Maranda's life. C. Atherton died in Dallas Cnty, TX about 1899-1902.The children were distributed to different people (some earlier) the last one was Eulur H. Atherton who lived with Ed Hardesty and wife; Annie Atherton lived with the Thompson family in Colleyville, TX; Virgie lived with the Elliott family in Grayson Cnty, TX.
Apparently, C. Atherton kept the two younger boys with him until he took ill (may have been TB or something that lingered for awhile).Julian Franklin Atherton born 1882 Miss, and Euler H. Atherton born Grayson Cnty, TX.There was an older son A.Edward Atherton who married Mary Lawhon/Lawhorn in Grayson Cnty, TX abt 1891.A step son Oscar Webb also married.Information has been sent to LDS abt A.Ed Atherton (they show he was born 1865 in KY) but know nothing about his mother or step mother.
I keep hitting dead ends because I can't find his death record and the only other place is the 1850 census (to locate his parents).Anyone who can give me a push, please let me know!
