1840 US Federal Census – Enoch Ben George Family

Moving over to Barbour County, Alabama I think I have located Enoch Ben and his family. Again, all family members are covered, there are a couple extra males I don’t know what they are.

Let’s look:

1830 US Census – Enoch Ben George Family

I believe I have found Enoch Ben George and his family on the 1830 Census. For the most part it fits, there is one minor issue… an extra person that I cannot identify (as you know this census doesn’t have names of people… let’s take a look…

Restart!

After watching videos and reading information about how to do research plans and prepare for studying a family, I have decided I was going about this process all wrong.

My goal, therefore, has changed. I have spent the week making a research plan for this family and working methodically through the research.

Here are some of the items on my research plan! It is far from complete, I think this will give me a good start on my research. My goal is to pin down some documentation, then redo and update the research plan.

On Ancestry I will research in the following databases:

  • Alabama Marriage Collection 1800-1969 Ancestry.
  • Alabama Marriages, 1809-1920 Ancestry.
  • Alabama State Census Records 1820-1850
  • US Federal Population Census 1790-1860
  • Broad Sweeping Search and Online Trees (Just for hints to follow up on)
  • Alabama Maps and Texas Maps of Various Kinds

On Family Search I will research the following:

  • Alabama County Marriages, 1809-1950 FS
  • Alabama Marriages, 1816-1957
  • Marriage, death and legal notices from early Alabama newspapers, 1819-1893 FS
  • Texas, Probate Records, 1800-1990
  • US Federal Poplation Census 1790-1860
  • Selected cemeteries of Blanco County, Texas
  • Texas records from bibles, probate records, wills, cemeteries, 1639-1954
  • Original grantee-patentee Texas land titles
  • Broad Records Search
  • Alabama and Texas Maps or Various Kinds

I will also be checking websites like Find A Grave, Billion Graves, Message Boards, and Various Search Engine Searches just to see what other information may be out there.

This seems to be a pretty straight forward start to my research. If you have other ideas, please let me know!

It Starts With A Marriage!

Enoch George married Sinthy Autrey in St. Clair County, Alabama.

Surety bond was paid by Drury Ashcroft. (Not sure who this is as of yet or how he fits into the picture).

The first child was born about a year after this marriage.

Next Goal: Look for them in the 1830 United States Census. Also look for any George and Autrey families living in St. Clair County, Alabama in 1820 Census.
