JAMES SLINKARD, 1870 Bryd Twsp., Cape Girardeau Co., MO
Posted by: Linda Gaunt (ID *****2751) Date: December 02, 2003 at 01:41:44
  of 915

My husband's great grandfather is HIRAM EDWARD SLINKARD (1866, Cape Girardeau, MO -- 1926, ?) married to HANNAH ELIZABETH HAHN (1867, MO -- about 1948, ?)

I recently was given info from a family Bible that showed siblings to HIRAM which included;
JEFF (poss JEFFERSON)born about 1860
LIZA (who married KINDER)
HIRAM had a twin brother who died young
(above in family Bible)
EVE born about 1870
THOMAS born about 1868
(info from 1870 Census)

I located a 1870 Census with the following info;
Name spelled SLINKHARD
Bryd Twsp., Jackson PO, Cape Girardean Co., MO
This information showed HIRAM and his siblings, but included EVE and THOMAS. It showed JAMES, born about 1837, MO as head of household and MARY, born about 1855, MO, his wife.

Census info shows James 33 yrs., farmer Allen, Burch 18 male Illinois farm hand & Martha Wirarffer (possible spelling?)18 yrs listed as help.

I located a 1850 Cape Girardeau Census which showed JAMES SLINKARD 12 or 14 yrs
living w/ family of Miles, Doyl 61 yrs
Eve wife? 44 yrs
Leo N18
Theodore 16
L. female 12
Caroline 8 or 2?
Hiram 3 months

I don't know if this is the same JAMES SLINKARD, but his sons were named HIRAM & LEO and his daughter, Eve.

HANNAH ELIZABETH HAHN is the daughter of DAVID HAHN (1834, MO -- 1887, Bollinger Co., MO)buried in the HOLT Cemetery and CAROLYN NISEWONGER (1837, Cape Girardeau, MO -- 1900, Bollinger Co., MO) buried in the HOLT Cemetery.

Does anyone know which SLINKARD line JAMES connects to?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
