I am looking for any information that would help identify the people in this household in the 1870 Harrison Co., KY Census, Berry's District, Boyd's Station, all born in KY:
81 80 Hendrix, Jane, 38, F,W, Keeps House,
------Richard, 11,M,W, At Home
Halsey, James, 22, M,W, Stone Quarrier
------Louisa, 20, F,W, No Occupation
I would like to discover the maiden name of Jane and Louisa.
I am searching for the first twenty years of my g-grandfather's life. According to his obit., Richard Worth Hedricks was born March 31, 1859 in Harrison Co., KY. I have other sources that say he was born in Indiana. I have located him (age 20) in Trimble Co., KY in 1879 when he married Lucy C. Mahoney. He and Lucy lived in Carroll Co., KY in 1880 and moved to Spencer Co., IN sometime around 1888. I have the details of his life from 1879 until his death in 1939 in Spencer Co., IN. Also according to his obit., he was orphaned young. I have two documents that give his parents names as Jane (Saddler) and James Hedricks. In various census records for Richard, he(or whomever is giving the details) gives his mother's birthplace as KY but his father's is sometimes KY and sometimes IN.
I am guessing that Louisa Halsey may be the daughter of Jane Hendrix. If so, Jane would have been about 18 when Louisa was born and she would probably have been married around 1849. Based on their ages, I am guessing that James and Louisa Halsey were married around 1869.
If there are marriage records for Harrison Co. around 1849 and 1869, would someone please look for the marriage of
Jane __?__ and __?__ Hendrix/ Hendricks/ Hedricks, and also for Louisa __?__ and James Halsey?
Even though my g-grandfather's surname was Hedricks, it fairly consistently gets transcribed as Hendricks.
I would like to hear from anyone that has any information about any of these people.
