In Response To: Re: Nannie Hickman & George W. Martin ()
Hi neighbor.....I'm located in Springfield, Ohio and get to Columbus frequently for research and visiting cousins. Perhaps we can "do lunch" sometime .
Let's try this one for your "elusive" George Martin in the 1880 Census. He seems to "fit"....11-12 y/o in 1880, still found in Rutland Twp., Meigs Co., OH, born in Ohio with parents born in VA/WV.
Interesting that at 11 y/o he was listed as a "boatman". That also adds to your suspicion that he was located near a "river town". Rutland is near Pomeroy which is right on the Ohio River.
