Hello Everyone!... I see its been quite some time, since anyone posted to this board BUT Im in *hopes* that someone may see this posting, who *might* have other information to help me in my search.
In researching my ELLIS line, I find my great Aunt, Josephine ELLIS living in the household of John J. LETCHER. Josephine (b. 1863 AL age 17 at the time) *works in house*, single &*other* is listed as relationship, which I assume there is none, other than she was working for him.
John J. LETCHER (b. 1840 age 40 at the time), married, head of household, works as farmer, father born SC, mother born KY. This information is found in the 1880 Maplesville, Chilton Co. Census.
Does anyone know IF Josephine married any sons of John J. LETCHER & moved to Tx?.....NO ONE in our family can find anything on her, & in finding this census, this morning, is the first lead, Ive had in 3 years on her! Ive been told, by family, "she married & moved to Tx" but no one knows who she married ( believed to be a MOORE but unable to find records)
Does anyone know if there is a relationship between the ELLIS's & LETCHER's? Josephine's mother died in 1869 & her father, in 1879. In 1880 her brothers were living with WEAVER decendants ( from their mother's side) & we had *assumed* Josephine was married & in Tx by this time. I appreciate any reply, wheter it gives me a lead or not!...TIA.. Sandy AL
