I have been studying Carolyn Bowman's postings online and feel sure we are tracing the same families. I hope we can share information.My email to Carolyn at email@example.com bounced.
I am interested in Nathan Wallace (1850 census, Hickman Co, age 43) married to Margarett.He evidently dies before 1860 because Margaret shows up in Obion Co, TN dist. 13with some of the children as the head of the household; she prob. dies before 1870 census.
I am trying to figure out if the Isom Wallace (age 17) son of Nathan and Margarett in the 1850 census in Hickman Co. is in fact the ISHAM Wallace (age 28) in dist. 13 Obion Co, TNin the 1860 census on the same page with Margarett above but in a different household.. now married and listed as a"millright".It seems that would be true!In ISHAM's household in 1860 is C. J. Wallace, age 22 and HE IS THE DIRECT LINE I have the lineagefor to the present date.C. J. HOWEVER is not found on the 1850 census with Nathan and Margarett unless his real name was LEVI?From 1860 onward he is always referred to as CJ.
There must be a relationship for this 22 year old C J Wallace to be living in the household of Isham Wallace working as a miller.Perhaps a brother, a nephew, a cousin?Have you found any information that would tell me if CJ is really Levi or not?
I assume the Nathan Wallace in the 1850 census to be the brother of the Levi Wallace living with the Feyers in Hickman Co.Do you agree?
I will enjoy comparing research notes with you if you would like to reply to this email.Thank you, Janice Sly, Jasper, GA
