Poling, John b c 1819, VA m Lettice A. ?
Do you know this Poling family?
A truly great person on the Shelby Co, IL list has found my Rosa M. Cummins as an infant in the 1980 Census of Jackson Twp, Brown Co, IN as follows:
Poling, John Sr.W M 61yo Married FarmerBorn VA Father b VA Mother b VA
Lettice A. W(wife) F 60yo Married housekeeper BornVA Father b VA Mother b VA
SarahW(dau) F 28yo Single ServantBorn OH Father b VA Mother b VA
Cummins, AW(son-in-law) M 30yo Single Laborer Born OH Father b VA Mother b VA
Sandofer, Edwin W(grndson) M 12yo Single wks on farm Born IN Father b IN Mother b VA
WilliamW(grndson) M 10yo Single wks on farm Born IN Father b IN Mother b VA
Cummins, Rosa M. W(grnddau) F 9/12Born INFather b IN Mother b VAThe implication of this is that Rosa’s mother and the mother of the Sandofer boys are dead (or run off), and that Rosa’s mother was a Poling by birth-though notice A Cummins was born in OH, and Rosa’s father was born in IN-so either A. Cummins was not Rosa’s real father, or the Census taker was given eroneous information?Does anyone out their know of these families?
