I am just starting my search into the Francis line of my family, my line is as follows so far as I have found:
James Patrick Francis, my grandfather, son of Harry Henry Francis and Mary Martin Francis, son of Henry Phillip Francis and Mary Elizabeth or Electa Russ, son of I believe Phillip Francis and Lucy Unknown.
I have been utilizing Union County KY's census records, etc. And found the following:
490A10FrancisLucy44Vapg0482b.txtDistrict No 2 490A11FrancisMary A11Kypg0482b.txtDistrict No 2 490A13FrancisPhillip55Kypg0482b.txtDistrict No 2 490A12FrancisSusan H8Kypg0482b.txtDistrict No 2 490A14FrancisThos14Kypg0482b.txtDistrict No 2
also I found Henry found at a different household with a Frances Butt but not married....later I found that Phillip and Frances married:
• 18 Jun.1854 Phillip Francis widow Frances Butt Widow
I am assuming this is the same Phillip that was listed on the 1850 Census with Lucy, assuming Lucy passed on and Henry had been living with Frances in 1850 so it makes sense to me that the Henry Mattingly listed on the 1850 Census is the son of Phillip Francis.....unfortunately I can not find exact proof of this as the 1840 Census Phillip is not listed and on the 1830 Census it only list the head of household.
Anyone know of this particular line of Francis family? Would love some help on this one...
