I'm sorry that I did neglect to state my connection to the Feebacks. I have no personal connection. I am helping my son-in-law research his family, especially his biological grandfather's lineage.
His mother told him that she was adopted when she was very young. Her biological father was named George Feeback from Kansas City, KS, and
her mother was Mildred McCormick, also of Kansas City KS. Mildred and George were about 17 years old when she was born. They were married (abt 1931) and divorced before 1937. Mildred remarried in 1927 to Ury Chubb, Mt. Vernon, Lawrence, MO. The McCormick/Chubb families have been researched and are known to my SIL. The Feeback connection is the mystery. Thanks! CWB
I keep running out of space. Martha Elizabeth Matlock's mother was Elizabeth Hinds who married James C. Matlock in Roane County, Tn. I think Keziah may be an aunt or sister or relative of Elizabeth. The couple, with brother and father of James C. moved to Yellville, Harrison, Ark area and are on the 1850 census there. The family spent a lot of time going back and forth to Cedar Co where the Abbotts lived.
Gene: Here is what you need. Joseph b. @ 1805 Va died 1866 Vernon Co (has estate there); Keziah b. @1806 Tn died 1859 Vernon Co (Monticello) on 1850 Mortality Sch. No marriage date confirmed by anyone that I have seen.
1. Mary Elizabeth b. 1821 N. C. died 4 Mar 1886 Polk Co
2. Martha Jane b. 24 July 1828 d. Dec 188 Everton, Dade County, Mo.
3. Elisha 10 May 1823 died 27 June 1899 Polk Co (buried Trimble Cem); 4. William @ 1830 Va died 18 Mar 1862 Van Buren, Ark (War), Benjamin F @ 1832, Ruth Sophia @ 1834 NC died 3 Feb 1883 Polk, Anna @1838 Va, Rachel @ 1839 Va, Susan @ 1841 Va, Joseph. I think the lines just chanced and theydidn't move. Smythe was in Va and NC as I recall but the lines were back and forth in this area so you can't go by the place of birth. Deaths are verified by death certificate, family or cemetery. My grandmother said something about Bocetout (not spelled right) County. Noble Abbott, grandson of Elisha went to all these counties and looked at everything for years. I have a note that says a Joseph Abbott was in this area during the Dunnmore War and because of information, that research thought he was son of Joseph/Petty in Halifax County. You see this information on the net a lot but haven't seen any actual proof of that but I think itmight be true. Check Stokes County: Benjamin, Joseph, Elisha, Armstead information. Lots of information but lots of gaps. Birthdates started out for J & K as 1790s.
Gene: I appreciate your help and will post in my next post that information I have. Elisha is indeed Joseph's son. He is my direct ancestor. Elisha adopted?-took in-Martha Elizabeth Matlock (living in 1870 in Harrison Arkansas with her brother Tom as HOhousehold. By 1878, Martha and William Center Abbott are married in Cedar County, Mo. They had my grandmother, Fannie Mae Cowan.
Information on Joseph to follow. My reports are ready for release yet.
When I work on a query. I like to know where 'they've been'. Nothing more frustrating than searching for the census records and spending hours looking for that misspelled surname. Even if i know they 'have' it it helps me to go look at the records in case there is a clue somewhere.
But, what gets me the most is that people won't post dates or places, so for me, I'd love it id they post as their title/subject
John Doe, 1900-1998, Someplace, US
Then describe what they have. What is hard for me is when they list their pedigree, as 'what they already have' to me that tells me they just have this tree and want to fill in a blank, they don't want to do the leg work, so 9 times out 10 I will ignore that post, id it take me ten minutes to figure out what they are asking for, I'm not going to waste my time.
So I like brief and to the point, then I will ask them questions if I'm stuck.
I know a lot of people have never been to a FHL or done any transcribing, so take the indexed records available through familysearch for granted. I have put in my hours on FamilyIndexing. :)
I've never actually ordered a microfilm through the FHL, but I may do that to try and find info on my Shadrach Steere, I'm hoping against hope to get a clue to his father through a Glocester land deed from 1803, and it appears they have the film, but until my kids are in school all day it wouldn't be worth ordering the film til I can have hours to look through it. :)
They are all related. The Hinds, Matlock and Abbott are possibly intermarried? The Cowan is married to the Abbott. I would like to keep them together as they are all Eastern Tennesse, same area. Thanks for the suggestions.
:) I tried the FamilySearchPilot site just for kicks actually, I haven't researched Arkansas that often, so I had no idea. Its also possible thatthe same Dock went to Texas and died in 1934, but it indicates he was born in Louisiana-there is also a WW1 draft card for a Dock Raymond born in 1874 in Louisiana who was a Cook in TX? He's African American and lists a Chas Raymond as closest relative, its a stretch but it could be James' father?
Been busy, rang St John of God RC Parish Church, got the number for their cemetery keeper, 2 cemeteries merged & the records are there but not computerised, the man I spoke to is going to check through a few years for me sept 1918 onwards, must ring him back next week, Also rang local McKees Rocks newspaper, about publishing the photo and story. Must post it on to them, no e-mail. Monica
I did find out that Thomas M Munshaw was born in 1842 not 1836 and listed in the 1851 census with his family. He was also listed in the directory/gazettier for 1865 - 66 but nothing after. I have no way of obtaining a will of Aaron Munshaw sr, any help would be appreciated. Aaron moved to Flesherton post 1837 (he was one of the rebels from the Rebellion of 1837) therefore Thomas would have been born in Flesherton, not Markham as previously understood.
I just peeked at the records you sent me, they look like they match the info given by Willette, and I do believe that it is Tucker in 1870. I'll be out for a couple of hours this afternoon, but I'll be watching out for responses from Willette. I'll post what seems appropriate, if she's willing to buy that Thomas is actually Tucker(and I believe this to be the case) we'll go from there. I'll also see if there is anything on Footnote or Genealogybank or any of the other resources, I have-
