Hi - I have some interest in the Caho, Cahoe etc. family b/c I am trying to track down what I believe to be a related line (Purdy). Your Hilary might be the son of Joseph Caho who married in Nelson County. This is a post of mine on the Washington County, Rootsweb board from a while back:
I am trying to put together my Purdy line and I think that Elizabeth Purdy (Perdy, Pardy etc.) who supposedly married an Andrew Caho (Cahoe, Kehoe etc.) might be the sister of my William Purdy.

Their children I believe could be:

1) Henry Caho b. ~1805, d. ~1860 in Perry Co., MO
married a) Elizabeth Winfield 11/4/1823 Nelson Co.
b) Maria Roberts 7/14/1830 Nelson Co.

2) Joseph Caho d. bef. 1850 m.Mary Cissell 4/12/1823 Nelson Co.

3) Elizabeth Caho d. bef 1850 m. William McPherson 2/24/1816 Washington Co.

4) Sister Theresa Caho b. ~1797

There is an Eliza Cahoe in the 1820 Washington Co. Census with children. I believe this is Elizabeth Purdy Caho.

I would love to find a marriage record for Andrew Caho and Elizabeth Purdy in the hope I can narrow down where the Purdy family might have come from or the name of her father.

If anyone has any other info. about this family please let me know.

Thank you!

I noticed that your Hilary was living next to a Cissell family in the 1870 Marion Co. Census also that your Hilary married a McPherson (as did an Elizabeth Caho above). I think your Hilary is probably in this family not sure exactly where he fits but could very well be a son of Joseph as Henry left Nelson County early on (1830s?) for Perry Co., MO.

Let me know what you think-
