Re: Cant find any of these people after 1880 MORGAN - REIFF

Hi Jude,

There were two Fugate Families in Independence Co., AR. Royal Stokely Fugate and his wife Margaret Emeline Penland who were in Cocke Co., TN and in White River, Independence Co., AR by 1860.

And also William Fugate and his 2nd wife Mrs. Mahulda McHenry. If Granville were born ca. 1835, Mahulda "Hulda" might not have been Granville Fugate's mother. I know she wasn't his older brother Thomas Fugate's son because he was born May 1836.

Re: Charles Morgan

Charles' family was in Calloway Co., KY in 1840 and Marshall Co., KY in 1850 He was 16 years old in 1850. His mother, Jane was 40 yrs old and born in TN. They were in Healing Springs, Independence Co., AR by 1860 where his father, John Morgan, age 50 married Jane Estepp, age 26, 5 Jun 1855. Charles was 25 years old in 1860 and in 1870 he was 35 years old. So his age on the 1880 census is off by fifteen years.

I hope this helps!
