Daniel Ball George – Family Overview

I am going to start off with what I THINK I know about this family and work on the proofs for this as we go. Most of this information was given to me with no sources attached.

As I have already found Daniel Ball with his parents in the 1830 and 1840 US Federal Census, I am going to look to document the following census years for them:

  • Mary McSween – 1830 and 1840 with her parents.
  • Daniel and Mary together – 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880
  • Daniel Ball George after Mary died – 1900

NEXT TO DO: Find Daniel and Mary George Household in 1850 US Federal Census.

Cinthia Autrey – Research Questions

Here is a beginning set of research questions that I would like to research for Cinthia Autrey. These are very similar to those of Enoch Ben George, but a good place to begin. Here is where I will be starting:

  1. Who are the parents for Cinthia Autrey – (I have her father was Absalom Autrey and her mother was Lucy Naomi Kemp but no idea where this information came from.)
  2. Is her name spelled Cinthia or Cynthia. (May never have an answer to this, but I can hope right?)
  3. When and where in Saint Clair County, Alabama was she born?
  4. Was she baptized? If so, when and in what church?
  5. Did she have a will when she died? If so, how do I get a copy of it?
  6. Did she have an obituary in the newspaper?
    1. What newspapers were around his area at the time of her death?
  7. Still have census records to find him in:
    1. 1810 – Probably Alabama – Look under father’s name, Absolom Autrey
    2. 1820  – Probably Alabama – Look under father’s name, Absolom Autrey
    3. 1860 – Florida or Texas possibly – With husband and children.
    4. 1870 – Probably Blanco, Blanco, Texas.
  8. Was she listed on any Tax Records after he died.
  9. Did city directories exist in her area at this time period?
  10. Depending on her religion, were there any church records for her?
  11. Are there cemetery records for her?

Again, as I am researching these questions, I am sure I will add to this list at length. I will begin a research plan for her.

NEXT TO DO: Because I don’t have any idea what happened to Rebecah, I will begin with Daniel Ball George’s Family. While doing this I will try to figure out if Rebecah got married or died between the 1820 Census and the 1830 Census. I will introduce the family of Daniel Ball George in the next post.

Enoch Ben George Research Questions

I have put together a very preliminary set of research questions that I would like to research for Enoch Ben George. Here is where I will be starting:

  1. Who are the parents for Enoch Ben George – (I have his father was Jans Kristien George but nothing for his mother)
  2. When and where in Saint Clair County, Alabama was he born?
  3. Was he baptized? If so, when and in what church?
  4. Did he serve in the military? What wars would he have served in? (He died in Civil War year range)
  5. Did he have a will when he died? If so, how do I get a copy of it?
  6. Did he have an obituary in the newspaper?
    1. What newspapers were around his area at the time of his death?
  7. Did Enoch ever own land? Are there land records?
  8. Still have census records to find him in:
    1. 1800  – Probably Alabama – Look under father’s name, Jans Kristien George
    2. 1810 – Probably Alabama – Look under his name, then his father’s name, Jans Kristien George
    3. 1820  – Probably Alabama – Also under his name first, then his father’s name
    4. 1860 – Probably Texas – With wife and children
  9. Was he listed on any Tax Records?
  10. Depending on his religion, were there any church records for him?
  11. Are there cemetery records for him?
  12. Are there city directories for his time period in the places he was living?

As I am researching these questions, I am sure I will add many more to this list. I will start researching where I may be able to answer these questions.

Next To Do: Make a list of research questions for Cinthia Autrey.
