Dear Barbara,

 

I have been monitoring the requests this week Ė my husband has been answering them the past few months while I have been on a break. I thought I ought to contact you about your Davis family, because it was very familiar to me. About 4 years ago someone else requested this information, and as I studied it out at that time, I discovered that there are two Williams, and both married to an Adeline (strange but true). I believe (itís been awhile Ė so not perfectly sure) that the William in the 1850 census, with father William, was the one who drowned with his wife. I am going to look into this again and see what details are still available. We didnít keep the requests for that year for the ďone name researchĒ file online, so that search must be redone. Please allow a week or so as I scour our notes and records.

OK here goes. William and Adeline (Bruce?) Davis-were killed either 1886 or 1894 in Mt Sterling in a buggy - train accident. They were my great great maternal grandparents. I have their marriage date-sorry I left it at work. They appear on the 1850 census Lee TWP, Brown county with two children-the curious thing is that he is 45, she is 22 and they have a 12 year old William and a 11/12 Phebe-so is this his child by a former marriage or someone else's child.  I find this same young man in the 1880 census in same township, correct age with a wife of his own and children. Also find William and Adeline in 1880 with James, Kate and Charlotte.  I really need a death certificate or a copy of the obit.  Since the 1840 census is only a head of household I can't tell if william was married before and I have checked the marriage listings. Can you help me

Thanks

Barbara

Dear Barbara,

Not to burst your bubble, We live in Virginia. One of the beauties of the internet.

 

Just send the names of the persons you want looked up. You can check the census indexes and the cemeteries index to see if their names appear in those records.

 

Sincerely,

Ken Huffman

Ken,

The family I need looked up is not listed with the ones you have already researched so now how do I go about asking you for a lookup. I don't have much information. And may I say the site is quite remarkable. I have visited many but this is incredible-the amount of work you have done. What I would give to be there and help you. 

Thanks again,

Barbara

Barbara,

The One Name Research section is a copy of nearly all of the lookup responses I have made over my years as the Web Site Coordinator. The names searched are listed alphabetically and multiple searches for the same surname are numbered. On the main page of the web site is a link to the One Name research index. From there you just click on the surname you want and the previous lookup will come up.

 

Hereís a short cut link to it:

If you make a mistake and ask me to lookup something Iíve looked up before, Donít worry. I donít check, but it can save time for you as well as me.

 

Sincerely,

Ken Huffman

Ken,

I keep seeing something about a one name lookup. How does this work? I am new to your website and really enjoy it.

thanks again
