In Response To: Re: Amon B. ANDERSON/Newspaper Account ()
To try and answer your question that you asked Mr. Sanders
Point 1, Who made the determination that Ezekiel Cole Anderson was twelve "winters" old? What source or sources establishes his approximate birth at 1788 or 1791?
I am not sure how to answer that but I am looking into some sources that I came across.
Point 2, What source documents his and Winnie's wedding in Logan County, Kentucky? This is probably going to be the focal point for traveling back and forward on the timeline. Can we find personal letters or artifacts between the two. Winnie outlived him by about twenty years. What letters of recollection did she leave? What witnesses were at the wedding, who officiated? What kind of ceremony was it?
To start and for a lack of a better words...This person that must have a pea for a brain....DESTROYED!!! records dating from 1700's to about 1830/50's. It was told to me that the need for these records were not useful...This information was told to me the other day when I called Logan County, KY genealogy society. So what we have found about the marriage is all we will get.
Point 3,What records document his death. What did he die from and where? Did he die of natural causes or was he a victim of homicide as a previous post inferred?
I was told that no records were kept in that time period not until the late 1850's
