Re: Patton family
In Response To: Re: Patton family ()
I am attaching a llink to the image on Family Search, which shows Syd D'Priest wife Fannie and his family and Neander Depriest and his family listed below.
Syd his wife and children (James, Robt, Ann, E. Jr., Elizabeth, Richd, Caldona, Henry and Sidney) are listed as "M". Syd (age 55) is said to have been born in TN..all others in Alabama. Since in 1870 the oldest child in the household, James is 24, then Syd was in Alabama by 1846. I am assuming you have not identified the family by name on the 1860 census, which would lead you to believe they were enslaved.
In 1870 Neander and his wife Martha are also identified with the letter "M".. as are 2 of the children Robert & Martha, but 2 of the children seem to be identified with the letter "W"..Harrisa age 6 and Mollie.
In the "Colored 1866 Alabama Census" Sidney Depriest is listed. Only heads of household are named.
Do you have access to Ancestry or do you access Family Search which is a "Free service", you need to really analyze the images and the information that is provided.
I'm sorry Selvina, yes that would be around the
