Re: Clark: Experienced researchers, HELP!


Thank you SO much for going through the lengthy email AND for those nice remarks AND for your advice, which I will follow.

I have some more documents regarding America, but first I'd really appreciate if you can answer these two questions:

1. In the 1880 census, the second oldest child is Sanet (Sank), my wife's gr gr grandfather.
If he was your ancestor, would you add Ben Winbush (head of household in 1880) to your family tree as Sank's father based on the facts so far? Sank is listed as 'Son', but he was born before the marriage of America and Ben in 1875. Or does it still come down to if America Winbush in 1880 is Manda Clark in 1870? Per other documents, Sank WAS born in Jones County, and America was for sure Sank's mother. Ben passed away before 1900, nobody of my wife's elderly relatives know anything about him.

2. I don't know if you had a chance to look the household of Adam Winbush in 1870 and 1880. I believe they are Ben Winbush's parents, but I can not assume that only on last name and the fact that Adam and Martha are old enough to be Ben's parents correct? As I said earlier, there is only the household of Adam + Martha Winbush and Ben Winbush in Jones County in 1870.

Please let me know, and thanks again.
