Re: Annie (Ohaver) Tucker, 1880 Lowndes Co., MS
I believe that "Annie" Ohaver is Amanda Ohaver, daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Stainbach Ohaver. Benjamin was a policeman in Memphis, TN before the Civil War. He was Captain of CO F 25th MS INF and was wounded at Shiloh. Nothing further is known of him or his wife. I guess that they did not survive the war. However, their children including Amanda did survive. Amanda had a brother, George Thomas Ohaver who may be her twin who later became Chief of Police in Memphis. Some of this family, sister of Amanda, Clara Ohaver and her grand-mother, Lucretia Stainbach, were living with Rev. George Stainbach who was pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Columbus,MS from 1859 to 1872 and again from 1879 to 1883. George is likely the brother of Sarah Stainbach and that is why there are Ohavers living in Columbus during this time. I would be interested in any info you have regarding the Tuckers. I have additional info on Benjamin Ohaver and the Stainbach Family if you are interested.
