Re: Isaac J. PUGH b 1835 Virginia.

I am currently at an impasse in Chambers County, Alabama with no escape route in sight. Perhaps you can help. I welcome all suggestions to solve this brick wall.

Research reveals the following:

Teenage boy age 15 Isaac J. PUGH living in the home of Andrew Williamson in 1850 Chambers County, AL with no relative in sight. This is my impasse.

Unresolved questions are the following:

Why was Isaac at age 15 years living with the Williamson family?

What is the name of Isaac J. PUGH’s Mother and Father?

What is his connection to any known PUGH line?

Did Isaac really die in 1870?

Why is he listed on the1870 and 1880 Census for Randolph County, Alabama if he died on 21 March 1870 1870?

I look forward to any responses to my brick wall.
