I am working on a connection to Francis Ivey who traveled west at the same times and to the same places as other members of my Ivie line. I believe he is one of the four sons of Hardy Ivey in Brunswick Co, VA, based on postings by other researchers; but I can't find a marriage or death record for him. He is in Brunswick & Henry Counties, VA, in the late 1700s and then travels westward. (He is not the Francis Ivy in Bladen, NC; they can both be found separately through the years.)

In the 1820 census, Francis (45 up), Gilbert (26-45), and John Ivy (26-45) are all listed in the Henry Co, VA, census.

In the 1830 census, there is a Francis Ivy in Mercer Co, KY; he and a female are both 70-80 years old. Gilbert Ivy, 40-50, lives nearby. John Ivie, my ancestor, 30-40, lives in neighboring Anderson Co, KY.

In the 1840 census, there is a male 80-90, but no female of that age, in the household of John Ivie (40-50) in Williamson Co, TN.

I cannot find Francis after 1840. If anyone can help me find anything on Francis Ivie, I would appreciate it. Thanks. Sylvia
