In Response To: Re: Census/Marriage look up Claiborne Parish,La ()
I couldn't find the 1870 census mentioning Oliver and Margaret either. Can you please share the information that you have from that census. For example, ages, family member names, place of birth, parents' place of birth.
I'm looking for some Choctaw Bailey's too. I was wondering if we're looking for the same family line. My husband's ancestors are John and Amy Bailey (husband and wife). John is supposed to be Cherokee and Amy, Choctaw. But, that is just heresay. So, it could be reversed.
John and Amy were born in the 1820s, in South Carolina. They came to Texas and are in the 1870 and 1880 Burleson County, Texas censuses. They had 9 children. I'm wondering if Oliver, Margaret, and John are siblings or cousins. Their ages seem about the same. I know birth places on census records are wrong quite a bit.
Please let me know if you have any more information on the Bailey's, and if you've heard of John and Amy.
