Looking for others who are researching the Jacob FELCH line who married first Phoebe UNKNOWN and than to Hannah JOHNSON
My MORRIS line seems to be connected here more than what I thought..looking to prove it.
My Grt Grt. Grandfather (Enoch) I was told married a Mary JOHNSON born abt 1840 in Indiana. His brother William H MORRIS married Susannah FELCH (sister to Jacob)
In the 1850 census I found Mary JOHNSON living with my 2nd Grt grandfather and his mom and siblings It showed her at age 12 from Indiana. This was in Hancock Co., Ill.
In the 1860 census in Boone Co Mo i find Wm MORRIS and wife living next to a Mathias FILCH/FELCH. I beleive this Mathias who married a Susan JOHNSON to be Sussanna and Jacobs brother, Mathias and Susan had a son who first married a Mary E. MORRIS, daughter of Jacob and Sarah JOHNSON-MORRIS, than to Martha MORRIS, parents unknown. This FELCh son was IRA FELCH. Next to Mathias and Susan in the 1860 Boone Co. Mo census i find my 2nd great grandfather Enoch and Mary MORRIS. In the 1870 census Mathias and Enoch familys are back in Ill (Hancock I think) Enoch living next to sister, Susan who married James M. WILLIAMS, than next to James and Susan is Ira, his wife Mary and parents along with a Sarah Pierce and child whom I think is a FELCH who married Richard PIERCE in 1867 Ill. Ira and Mary had a daughter named Nancy A FELCH
I also found that Jacob (brother to Susan and mathias) and his wife Pheobe had a son named Harmon who married a Nancy MORRIS (Nancy UNKNOWN MORRIS is the name of Enoch's mother) wondring if this Nancy could be a niece of Enoch's.
In the 1880 census i find Enoch and family in Shelby Co., Mo with a Nancy Lanum with them. Had no clue who she is until I went back to viewing the FELCH line and I find another sister of Jacob, Mathias and Susanna named Mary who married a George LANNUM. This Nancy could be their daughter One other sibling of Jacob, Susannah,Mathias and Mary is a Rhoda who married a Andrew CREACH. Most marriages were in Pike Co. Ill and FELCH family were from PIKE CO, ILL.
I also found in the 1860 census a mother (Susanna) of Mathias born abt 1890 in Pa
I am trying to find out how much more my MORRIS or JOHNSON line is related to these others.
I'm wondering if Susanna, mother of Jacob, Mathias, Susanna, Mary and Rhoda could possibly be related somehow to Enochs mother, Nancy, born abt 1898 in Ohio according to 1850 census or possibly the unknown father/husband of this family.
Thank You in advance
