Re: [KY] Williams
In Response To: [KY] Williams ()
Sorry, but to the dismay of genealogy researchers all over the county, there is no 1890 US census. The 1890 census had received water damage after a fire and was destroyed. As to whether the Pressley Williams in the 1880 census in Fulton County, KY is the same Pressly Williams that is listed in Pulaski County, IL in the 1900 census...That's a good question. My sense, like yours, is that it probably is the same person but you do not have quite enough documentation to support the claim. I see Press is listed in the death index. Did you order his death certificate ? Did you find any clues on either of Press's marriage cerificates. It's possible Press served in the civil war. I see a Pressly Williams that served in Kentucky but it may not be your Press. You'll need to order his pension package from the government.
