I am seeking information on John C. HARGROVE born 24 Feb 1822 in
Mecklenburg Co. NC the son of William Manson and Mary (MCKINNEY)
HARGROVE. He married Nancy T. HENSON 1 Apr 1855 in Haywood Co., NC.
In order of what I believe to be their birth, their children were: Mary,
William. Thomas H., Mattie, Laura C., James L., Craig L., and June. I
found who I believe to be James in the 1880 Broadwater, Montana Census,
age 30, occupation of a miner, and born in NC.. June is believed to have
been born after 1880 when the family came to the Montana Territory, and
that her married name was MANN.
Family tradition states that John C. and his family went to Texas and
yet other states that he came to Montana Territory as early as 1856,
returning to NC, later returning to Motnana Territory a second time and
settled somewhere in the Fort Benton area near great Falls, MT. Further
tradition states that he had a falling out with the rest of the family,
who settled in then Meagher Co., when the all came to Montana.
I wish to contact any of the descendants of John C. and learn of the
where abouts of any of the family and learn of them what I can after
1870 in NC. This is the last record that has been found of them as a
family. Does anyone know? Thank you for your time.
