America Severs was b. abt 1846 probably in KY but possibly in IN. She married James F. Horton in Union Co., KY on June 12. 1861. They had two known children:
Susie E. Horton b.9-8-1869
James Willis Horton b. 2-25-1872
America apparently died young as James F. remarried in 1874.
The two ch. were raised by a paternal aunt.
America was on the 1860 Union Co. KY census at the age of 14 enumerated with John Patterson 40 IN and his son George 12 KY.
John Patterson m. Susannah Alvey 1849 in Henderson Co., KY.
(She died during birth of George)
1850 Henderson Co., Ky census John Patterson 28 KY George 2
Not too far away is L(orenzo)D(ow) Seavers 45 TN Malinda 44 KY Sebreann 24 IA? P---A--- 11 KY Martha L 9 KY Ellen A 6 KY Mary 4 KY
1840 Henderson Co., Ky L.D. Severs lived next door to James Patterson
Across the state line in Posey Co.,IN were both Patterson's and Severs' of whom had intermarried several times,even as early as 1824. Lorenzo and bro Francis Severs both had m. Patterson sisters (not Malinda from above). I'm looking for information on America. I would greatly appreciate any help. Could she be listed as Mary 4 KY??? or could she even be Ellen A(merica?) 6 KY Thanks
