Re: Anna Laura Greenslate - Greenup, Kentucky

In Reply to: Anna Laura Greenslate - Greenup, Kentucky by Dean Walker of 1220

James M. Greenslate married Samantha A. Thorn on Oct 22, 1873 in Greenup Co, Kentucky (Kentucky Marriages 1851 - 1900). Adalade may have been her middle name.

The 1870 census lists her name as Samantha M. Thorn.

1870 Springville, Greenup Co, Kentucky
Augustus Thorn, 48, born Ohio
Mary Ann, 47, East Virginia
Anna E., 15, Ohio
George M., 11, Ohio
Samantha M., 11, Ohio (twin to George)
Mary A.? B., 6, Kentucky
Amanda Roberts, seamstress, 20, Ky

The 1880 census lists James Greenslate living next door to Augustine Thorn in Scioto Co, Ohio

1880 Union Twp, Scioto Co, Ohio
Household 11
James Greenslate, 30, Ky/Ky/Ky, works in sawmill
Leoney, dau, 5, Ky
Ocalia, dau, 3, Ky

The only problem I see with this is James Greenslate did not have a daughter named Anna Laura in the 1880 census but the rest of the scenario seems to fit.

Household 12
Augustine Thorne, 65, farmer, Ohio (he must have remarried.
Hannah, wife, 35, Illinois/blank/Pa
H. John Rogers, 65, Pa/Pa/Pa

This looks to me like it might be Augustus Thorn in 1860
1860 Vinton, Vinton Co, Ohio
Augustus Thorn, 37, Ohio
Mary A., 40, Ohio
Ann E., 5, Ohio
Emeline, 9 months, Ohio
James, 9 months, Ohio
Elizabeth Tisdey, 21, Ohio
John Tisdey, 19, Ohio
William Tisdey, 18, Ohio
James Tisdey, 14, Ohio
Nancy Thorn, 15, Ohio

James Madison Greenslate born March 20, 1850 in Ky, died Feb 5, 1918 in Greenup Co, Ky, was the son of George W. Greenslate and Cynthia Ann Jones. See their information at the following website:
