Hi Stephanie,Sorry, I'm no help inyour search for"Prudie".I only have 7 children for Basil. Now where is my question. In my records I have: Alvin married Catherine Hamersley in Lawrence Co., IN on 6/15/1926.I found children: Jane 1929, John 1931, Basil 1937, & Lydia "Liddy" 1943. Alvin (Gilbert) married Cynthy Bowden in Lawrence co. on 8/16/1927.So, did Catherine die?3 of the children's names are the same as you found for those born to Cynthy & Alvin. Alvin bought land in Martin Co. in 1937 & several times in the next few years. Alvin married Jane West in Martin Co. in 1843.
1830 census, Lawrence Co., IN lists, Alvin with household of:1 male ag3 20-25 (Alvin b 1805 fits), 1 female age 20-25 & 1 female age below 5 yr. ( child Jane fits this age) The other 3 childen were born after 1830. 1840, 1850 census--couldn't find Alvin 1860 & 1870 census Brown twp, Martin Co., In.spouse is Jane.
Did Alvin marry Cynthy 1 yr. after marrying Catherine?Which spouse is the mother of the first children? Did Catherine die?Is my info wrong?All 3 marriages are found in the Indiana Marriage records.Except for Alvin "Gilbert" not "Gaither". I also don't find Cynthy as spouse of Alvin Gaither on any of the Family Trees listed.
