I am seeking information on James and Susan(nah) Tomlinson. James is on the census in 1820 and 1830. Then the listing changes to Susan through 1860. I find no Tomlinsons in Harrison Co. on the 1870 census.
I have a deed signed by Susannah Tomlinson in Portsmouth, Scioto Co., OH:
Susan Tomlinson to William Jackson
Susannah Tomlinson, widow and relick of James Tomlinson, late of Harrison County, State of KY, town of Cynthia, deceased to William Jackson for $250.00 the undivided 1/6 interest of inlot 50 which came to me by the last will and testament of my husband James Tomlinson deceased, and for which he in his lifetime had given to the said William Jackson a bond dated the sixth day of June 1836 binding himself, his heirs, executors and administrator to make the said William Jackson good and sufficient general trustee for said lot and land... Signed with her mark, witnessed by D. Woodruff and Sam. Williams on 03 Mar 1840, Justices of the Peace in Harrison Co., KY. Recorded 11 Mar 1842 in Scioto Co., OH
1820 Cynthiana, Harrison Co., KY
T James males: 1<10 and 2 16-26 females: 1 16-26
1830 same place
T James males: 1 20-30 and 1 30-40; Females: 1 30-40
1840 same place
T Susan living alone age 30-40
1850 same place Susan age 49 KY lives alone $3000
1860 Cynthiana, Harrison Co., KY census:
Tomlinson Susan age 61 KY housekeeper lives alone $4500 $9000
James must have died between giving the bond in June 1836 and Susan signing the deed in 1840. The deed cites his will. Susan disappears after 1860. Based on the census, she had a very sizable estate for that time.
I have been told that Susan was Susan Remington and they married 30 Jan 1818, but I have no proof and do not know where.
Could someone lookup death or burial dates, wills, or probates? Does anyone know anything about this family? If someone is willing to do lookups, contact me directly to discuss payment. I would appreciate any help anyone can offer!
