Fayette and Union Counties are neighbors. It is not unusual to find families moving between neighboring counties and in this area that includes Franklin, Rush, Shebly and Decatur Counties. Do you know the date and place of Lancelot Hand's death? There might be a death record which should include his parents' names. I do not know how common the name 'Hand' is, but there was a family by that name prominent in Cape May County, New Jersey. Several families from Cape May County moved west in the early 1800's settling in Ohio and then moving on to Indiana. My ancestors went first to Butler County, Ohio and then into Franklin, Fayette, Union, Shelby and Rush Counties in Indiana.
