Reference Henderson Co Heritage NC Vol II, Orphans & Needy Children. Page49

Date---------- Name of CHILD----GUARDIAN-------- PARENTS

20Dec1866 William SHIPMAN Thomas OSTEEN Heirs of W MERRELL
20Dec1866 Christain SHIPMAN
20Dec1866 S. Caleb SHIPMAN

I think these Children are the offsprings of Stephen SHIPMAN who was married to Nancy MERRELL who was the daughter of William MERRELL. Stephen SHIPMAN was the son of Edward SHIPMAN SR and Sarah Jane WILLIAMS OSTEEN.

Who is this GUARDIAN Thomas OSTEEN?? Sarah Jane Williams was previously married to a Thomas OSTEEN and he died (When??)since she was referred to as the widdow OSTEEN occasionaly.
Then She married Edward SHIPMAN SR (Where & When??)

If anyone can give me information on this I sure would appreciate it very much.
