Anyone know how these folks fit into the family tree? Amanda Bywaters b. 1825 VA Franklin Bywaters b. 1854 VA Delford Bywaters b. 1860 VA Mattie Bywaters b. 1866 VA
That is all that I know about them from the 1870 census where they are in Weston, Platte, Missouri, in the household of John C. Bywaters (b. 1801 VA) and wife Mary Elizabeth (b. 1805 VA).
I know John C.'s ancestry and they have been living in Missouri since about 1834.Amanda could be a daughter, but is perhaps a daughter-in-law and the three kids probably her children.But I haven't been able to find them in any other census before or after 1870.I don't find them in family trees or in marriage or death records or on find-a-grave.
I think I know who all of John C.'s children are, who were all either born or raised in Platte Co, MO.They are all younger than Amanda, who obvious lived in Virginia as recently as 1866. Are these all nieces and nephews?
Anyway, hope someone knows how they fit in.They are tied to John C. and Mary E, but they don't really fit that family unit's MO.
