Boose in Parke Co, IN 1850
Posted by: Pat Seaver Date: October 27, 2001 at 06:14:10
  of 51

The following families appear in the Parke Co, IN 1850 census:

Jacob Boose 46 b. Penn
Susan 36 OH
John A. 16 IN
Martha J. 14 IN
Hannah 12 IN
Eliza 10 IN
Charity 9 IN
Susan 1 IN

John Boose 51 (57?) VA
Fanny 46 KY
Minerva 17 IN
Mariah 16 IN
Louisa 15 IN
John 15 IN
William H. 12 IL
Sarah 10 IL
Martha 8 IL
Thomas 7 IL

Henry Boose 55 PA
Elizabeth 51 PA (nee Blackman)
Martha 17 IN
Henry 16 IN
Elizabeth 10 IN (aka Mary Elizabeth)
James Cathern (?)12 IN (it appears that Cathern or similar is his surname)

William H. Boose 25 IN (s/o Henry & Elizabeth Blackman Boos above))
Elizabeth 25 IN (d/o John & Fanny Boose?)
Henry 1 IN

Joseph Selby 26 VA
July Ann 25 IN (d/o Henry & Elizabeth Blackman Boos)
Elizabeth 4 IN
Hannah 2 IN
Elizabeth Wilson 22 IN

Some of these families later used the spelling Boos.

Henry & Elizabeth (Blackman) Boos moved to Johnson Co., IO shortly after 1850.

Joseph and Juliana (Boos) Selby moved to IO about 1852 and to St. Louis, MO during the Civil War. William H. & Elizabeth Boos died in Kingfisher Co, OK.

My line is (Mary) Elizabeth Boos Spangle, d/o Henry & Elizabeth (Blackman) Boos(e).

I am trying to determine(1) if Jacob, John and Henry were brothers (or related) (2) parents of Henry. There is a family tradition that Henry was born in Rockbridge Co, VA, but the 1850 census indicates his PoB as PA.

I have more information to share and would love to exchange information with anyone researching any of these families.
