In Reply to: Browning- Wright family KY circa 1865 +/- by Patricia Alvarado of 4259


Hi Patricia,
Here is what I have found.

1870 SUMMERS, MUHLENBERG, KY
BROWNING
Vincent, age 32, farmer, born KY

Mary E., age 31, keeping house, born IL

Sarah E., age 3, born KY

*****************************

1880 SUMMERS, MUHLENBERG, KY
BROWNING
Lutice, age 52, wife, keeping house, born KY both parents born VA

Vicent, age 42, farmer, born KY , father born NC mother born TN

WRIGHT
Nella, age 23, daughter, filed hand, born KY both parents born KY (there is something written under column for disease but I don't know what it says, looks like Fiseas rant

Robert, son, age 21, field hand, born KY both parents born KY

Edmond, son, age 14, field hand, born KY both parents born KY

BROWNING
S., age 13, daughter, born KY, both parents born KY

WRIGHT
Lida, age 84, aunt, born VA both parents born VA - rhuematism

*********************************
So it looks like either mother Elizabeth (Mary) died or she and Vincent were divorced - more likely she died I think.

It also seems that perhaps Vincent's second wife was related to Elizabeth (Mary)

I found Lutice in 1870

1870 SUMMERS, MUHLENBERG, KY
WRIGHT
Lutesia, age 42, keeping house, born KY

Bettie M., age 18, at home, born KY

Lottie, age 10, at home, born KY

Nellie H., age 14 at home, born KY

Robert, age 12, at home, born KY

Edward, age 10, at home, born KY

There is a Lewis WRIGHT living next door - he is age 20, farm laborer, born KY so maybe a possible son of Lutesia

****************************************
1860 GREENVILLE, MUHLENBERG, KY
WRIGHT
William, age 35, farming, born KY

Lutesia, age 30, domestic, born KY

Melissa A., age 12, born KY

Lewis H., age 9, born KY

Elizabeth, age 7, born KY

Pheb Z., age 4, born KY

Nelly A., age 2, born KY

***********************************

1860 GREENVILLE, MUHLENBERG, KY
BROWNING
C., age 72, farmer, born NC (male)

Vincent, age 22, farming, born KY

John, age 18, farm labor, born KY

Emelene, age 20, domestic, born KY

Marion, age 14, born KY (male)

Jackson, age 11, born KY

***********************************

1850 DISTRCIT 1, MUHLENBERG, KY
BROWNING
Caleb, age 40, born NC

Sarah, age 40, born TN

Vincent, age 12, born KY

Lucinda E., age 10, born KY

John J.C., age 8, born KY

L.M., age 6, born KY (male)

Martha J., age 4, born KY

Alfred J., age 1, born KY

**********************************

1850 DISTRCIT 1, MUHLENBERG, KY
WRIGHT
William, age 26, farmer, born KY

Lutitia, age 20, born KY

Malice A., age 2, born KY

Lewis H., age 1/12, born KY

**************************
I'm stuck on Elizabeth (Mary) Wright - 1870 census says she was born IL but I wonder if that is right. I cannot find her there, but again I cannot find her anywhere.

I thought I would look for Lida Wright - who is with the family in 1880 census.

1850 DISTRICT 1, MUHLENBERG, KY
WRIGHT
William, age 80, farmer, born VA

Lydia, age 54, born VA

Thomas W., age 20, born KY

William A., age 10, born KY

*****************************
I don't know where she was between 1850 and 1880. Could not find her.

Are you absolutely sure that Elizath (Mary) 's maiden name was WRIGHT?

I found three marriages for Vincent Browning

VINCENT BROWNING AND MARTHA A. FORD, MAY 27, 1864 MUHLENBERG, KY

VINCENT BROWNING AND MARY E. MOORE, APRIL 17, 1866 MUHLENBERG, KY

VINCENT BROWNING AND LUETITIA WRIGHT, AUG. 8, 1871, MUHLENBERG, KY

So it looks like he was married before Mary and it also looks like her maiden name was MOORE.

So this may be why I couldn't find her in earlier census years. So I looked to see if I could find a Mary Moore of right age.

1860 MCLEAN, KY - post office - social hill
MOORE
John H., age 48, farmer, born KY

Catharin D., age 41, born KY

Mary E., age 22, born IL

William D., farm labor, age 21, born KY

Margaret J., age 18, born KY

Eliza, age 16, born KY

Jesse, age 14, born KY

Sarah J., age 12,b orn KY

Cynthia A., age 6, born KY

James H., age 4, born KY

****************************
so she is the only one born IL

1850 DISTRICT 2, HOPKINS, KY
MOORE
Jno. H., age 35, farmer, born KY

Catharine, age 34,born KY

Mary E., age 13,born KY

William D., age 13, born KY

Margaret, age 9, born KY

Ann E., age 8, born KY

Jesse B., age 5, born KY

Sarah J., age 3, born KY

Cynthia A., age 1, born KY

******************************
I found Jesse B. in Muhlenberg 1870 and also found a family with John age 50 (as indexed but looks like it could be 59 in image)
with him age Manda J. age looks like 49
Sarah, age 28, Cynthia age 18 and James H. age 14

Cynthis and James are right age to be children of John and Catherine - Sarah should only be aboue 22, not 28 and who is Manda unless she is a second wife for John.
So I am not sure about this family.


1900 BREMEN, MUHLENBERG, KY
GISH
Benjamin E., age 50, born Nov. 1849, married 9 years, born KY born paretns born KY, farmer

next door
GISH
Anne, age 62, widow, born March 1838, runs a farm, born KY both parents born KY

Riley, grandson, age 12, born Jan. 1888, born KY both parents born KY

in very light lettering beside Anne it says 0 children born but that cannot be right if she is a grandmother.
**********************************

1910 SACRAMENTO, MCLEAN, KY
GISH
Benjamin E., age 60, 1st marriage, married 22 years, born KY both parents born KY, farmer

Sarah C., wife, age 44, 1st marriage, married 22 years, 3 children born, 2 living, born KY both parents born KY

*************************

1920 FLEMING. LETCHER, KY
GISH
Benjamin E., age 70, miner, coal mine, born KY father born KY mother born VA

Sarah C., wife, age 49, born KY both parents born KY

**********************************
1930 SECO, LETCHER, KY
GISH

Luther D., age 40, miner, coal mine, married at age 21, born KY both parents born KY

Nannie, wife, age 36, married at age 18, born KY both parents born KY

Gene, daughter, age 5, born KY both parents born KY

Peggy L., daughter, age 3-6/12, born KY both parents born KY

Sarah C., mother, age 55, widow, married at age 14, born KY both parents born KY

** the spelling of Gene for a girl is unusual - I had an Aunt whose name was spelled that way also - generally for girls it is Jean and boys Gene but she liked it the way it was.

**************************************

1930 SECO, LETHCER, KY
GISH
Ben. F., age 35, married at age 21, foreman at coal mine, born KY both parents born KY

Lucille, wife, age 30, married at age 18, born KY father born KY mother born VA

Louise, daughter, age f12, born KY

Gladys Bell, daughter, age 9, born KY

Juanita, daughter, age 7, born KY

Tom Ed., son, age 4-3/12 born KY

Franklin, son, age 7/12, born KY

all children show both parents born KY

in same household
MOORE, Orrie A., boarder, age 27, stenographer, coal co. born KY both parents born KY

HELWIG, Nettie A, boarder, age 24, teacher, public school, born IL father born IN mother born OH

I wonder if this Moore is a relation of the Moore family I looked into.
