Re: James Billingsley - Logan Co., Ky - 1800
Yes, I did reply but I don't recall getting a response.Perhaps she didn't see my response either.
Andrew Carnahan and Elizabeth Billingsley did have a daughter named Ann.According to the Andrew Carnahan bible she was born on 3 Oct 1792.
The 1810 census for Andrew shows a female age 10-16 that could possibly be either Ann or Mary.The first child I have listed for Mary who married William Hart Youree is Elizabeth b. in 1814.For that reason, I suspect that the age 10-16 female listed with Andrew in 1810 is probably Mary.
There are several possibilities for Ann:
1.With a b. date of 1792, she would have been 18 in 1810 and could quite possibily be married.
2.She could be deceased by 1810.
3.She could be living with someone else.
I do think that Ann possibly died early - either after or before she married.She is not listed as an heir in the 1816 James Billingsley estate records in Logan Co., Kentucky while the children of Elizabeth Billingsley are.I would think that if she were still alive or if she had any children they too would have been included in that document.The same holds true of later documents for the James Billingsley estate as well.
And... as for being a niece of the Rev. John Carnahan there is also another possibility there.That relationship might also be coming from the Billingsley side.For example, Mary Billingsley, sister of Elizabeth and Jane Billingsley and also a daughter of James Billingsley married Joseph Shannon.Based on what I have now they had a daughter named Anna Shannon.John Billingsley, a son of James Billingsley and brother of Elizabeth, Jane, and Mary, md Martha Blair.The also had a daughter named Ann.
Although not "Carnhanan"s, these two "Ann"s would also qualify as nieces of the Rev. John Carnahan.
We really need some more information in order to make the connection here.
Hope this helps a bit.
