Re: Samuel Baldridge Gilmore and Margaret McMechan
Henry Gilmore and Sarah Sherrill m 1 Mar. 1830 in Putnam Co. IN.Marriage performed by Henry Gilmore.
Henry Gilmore in Putnam Co., IN 1830 census.Oldest male was age 50-60.Who was he and was he the one who performed the 1830 marriage?
Henry Gilmore of Putnam Co., IN acquired from the Government 40 acres in Putnam Co.
1850 Census, Putnam Co., IN
Emsley Gilmore 50 NC (female)
Eleanor Gilmore 21 IN
Sina Gilmore 18 IN
Levi 15 IN
Henry P. 14 IN
This family in 1850 was living next door to, I believe, Sarah (Sherrill) Gilmore's brother, John C. Sherrill.POSSIBLY Sarah died, Henry Gilmore remarried, and then he died in or before 1850.
Does any of this tie into your family?
