alt: all roads lead to Ohio .... from Virginia LOL LOL

Daviss: lol lol lol

Seventies Soulchild: lol lol lol

alt: I doubt if i have that one Seventies Soulchild

Seventies Soulchild: I do have a question alt or Selma. Anyone born before 1863 in old Virginia would've still answered in later censuses that they were born in VA right? Someone born about 1860.

alt: could be Seventies Soulchild, but a lot of folks were born in what is now West Virginia & Kentucky when they were still a part of VA and they list WV & KY as their birth locations especailly around 1860.... whe WV spilt from VA around 1863 or so. right Selma???

Selma: Hold on making a sandwich

Seventies Soulchild: This is Welcome Bowman's father Jacob Bowman's place of birth. But I figured that he came from pre 1863 VA to OH

Selma: They split in 1861...

alt: okay Selma, thanks

Seventies Soulchild: Welcome Bowman was the husband of my aunt Julia Washington

Selma: They should have recorded their births as VA..but you never know what folkssay

Seventies Soulchild: And Huron Co. OH is in northern Ohio

Daviss: In the 1870 census I have people that were born in Ga, Ala and NC. However in the area they live in (10-12 pages on census) there are no non AA's near, what ave can I use to narrow down a county?

vkn: My Nelson followed Daniel Boone from KY to VA

Daviss: Or have I asked that question before of you all

alt: hey y'all .. on the John Legend segment coming up Sunday... if his FPOC ancestors researched are the Hargo's of Ohio, they were negihbors of my Allen & Walden ancestors in Ross & Pickaway counties from like the 1830's forward.

Seventies Soulchild: Looking forward to the episode alt... will you be able to watch on TV Sunday or will you have to watch online?

Daviss: that would be good to hear alt..

alt: DAviss, you might try looking at the suranmes in those states and note the counties in earlier census records.

Selma: Yes, look to see where folks were from in the earlier censuses

alt: I'll have to watch online Monday or on TV MOnday evening Seventies Soulchild

Daviss: Ok but they had no counties listed

Selma: Daviss..are there books on the history of these counties..they usually have a chapter on where the folks came from originally There is a migration pattern from other states

alt: do a search on those surnames Daviss .. HQ or what ever you use... those surnames will show up in various census years by county within state.

Daviss: ok, I guess I can use the SW Quarterly and see what I can find

alt: and then try and zero in on the names you are familiar with in the States you have listed GA, AL & NC

Daviss: browse the index to see if they list texas counties and go from there. Thx

vkn: Good search approach

Seventies Soulchild: hello bbenn

alt: i do that all of the time on Ancestry....That's how I found FPOC Hargo's in Ross & Pickaway County OH.... search Hargo, then added Black for race and found them as early as 1830.

vkn: Howdy bbenn

bbenn: Hello alt, Daviss, Selma, Seventies, vkn:}

alt: hello bbenn

Daviss: I did a name search of all the White Surname on the 50 and 60 census for Grimes County texas but could not come up with a county in Ala Hello BBenn

Seventies Soulchild: Daviss, perhaps they only lived in AL but born in GA

Selma: Mom is watching the Golf Channel..the Players just came on

Daviss: Joseph White was born in Ala

Selma: Afternoon bbenn

alt: go Mom LOL .. is Tiger in the tournament this week?

bbenn: HOWDY!

Selma: yes..but don't know where he is

alt: he missed the cut last week.

Daviss: ended up in Tx but he has been hard for me to find him or his father Jsoeph White I am trying to find his slave inventory from Ala

alt: try loking for Joseph White in AL and/or GA during those census years Daviss.. hopefully you'll find some and the counties they were living in.

Selma: Is Joseph white the slave owner daviss..

Daviss: yes both father and son

alt: also you might try the slave schedules for those same years 1850/1860 for a Joseph white in those States, if you haven't already tried that.

Daviss: Son lived past 1890 I have looked for his obit but so far no luck I was thinking I could get a clue from there

Selma: alt..lead is at -6

alt: if not an obit.. perhaps he is listed on a death index

Daviss: nada so far alt but I will keep looking

alt: okay Selma, thanks.
