Unless the census takers were wrong about the age of John Germany born in Ga on the 1850 & 1860 Rusk Co Tx censuses, the John Germany (born 1810) who was enumerated in 1850 was a different man than the John G. Germany (born 1830) enumerated in 1860, 1870, and 1880 Rusk Co.
Neither of these men were shown with any family on these censuses although it appears that the John G. Germany born 1830 Ga married Margaret E. [MEDFORD] 18 Sep 1865 in Rusk Co. However, John G. was not shown with a wife in 1870 but is shown as a widow in 1880.
There could be a kinship between either John Germany and the widowed Mary Germany that left Pike Co Ga after 1850 and was enumerated 1860 in Rusk Co with her son Joseph.
Mary was born in Ga abt 1800 and is reported to have been the wife of Wm J. Germany who died in Pike Co Ga in 1842.
Two of Mary's daughters & their husbands appear to have come with her to Tx: Beady C. [Germany] married to Williamson W. Whelis and Elizabeth [Germany] married to Wm C. Hughes as they too are on the 1860 Rusk Co census.
Does anyone have any records of this family after they arrived in Rusk Co?
I am especially interested in identifying the two John Germany's to see if they are related to Mary somehow.....
Also, if anyone knows of any "kinnection" between the Germany's in Rusk Co Tx and the 2 Germany sisters listed below, I realllllyyy want to hear from you.
12 Jan 1848 -Mary Ellen [Germany] married John Anthony Hart in Madison Co MS. She died 1898 in Mobtague Co Tx.
21 Jun 1849 - Nancy Louise [Germany] married James M. Bailey in Madison Co MS - she died 1906 on Montague Co Tx.
