I'm trying to track descendants of my Caucasian ggg grandfather, James Crain/Crane.James and family are listed in the 1860 Census in Harbins District, Cherokee County, GA, including his 22-year-old daughter, Elizabeth (in 1850 SC Census she was 11).According to the 1860 entry, they were all born in SC.Elizabeth wasn't listed with them in the 1870 AL Census.
My library has the searchable 1880 CDROMs.On searching for Elizabeth's who were born about 1858 in SC, the following record turned up in Twp. 17, Dist. 66, Jefferson Co., AL:
Jery G. Dotson, Self, 54, TN VA VA Elizabeth Dotson, Wife, 40, SC SC NC Lou Stone, StepDau, 19, GA GA SC Mary Stone, StepDau, 13, GA GA SC Josie Dotson, Dau, 9m, AL TN SC
Does anyone have any information that would lend support to the idea that this Elizabeth's maiden name was Crain or Crane?Even if not, I hope this information is useful to someone.(My ggg aunt's parents were born in SC and NC.)Thanks for any help or suggestions.
