I have finally broke through a brick wall and now have connected to William & Susan Quinley.
I just have a few questions... I thought maybe you would know or point me in the right direction. I noticed your sources where reliable.. family bibles.
First of all my line starts with my gggGrandparents:
Victoria York & John Henry Golden
I have Victoria's mother as Caroline Quinley... but on the 1900 census Caroline is using the last name Golden??? Not sure what's going on there..Lol.
Anyway 1900 census is as follows: (Montgomery Co. Texas)
(Head) Caroline Golden b. Dec 1849, 50 yrs old, Widowed b. in Miss, father GA, mother AL
Victoria York, daughter, 14 yrs, b. Feb 1886 in Texas, father FLA, mother MISS
(Mother of Head) Susan Quinley, b. Nov 1833, 66 yrs old, widowed, was married for 51 yrs, has had two children, with only one still living, (caroline)
Susan b. in Alabama, father GA, mother GA
Susan was married to William Quinely of Conecuh Alabama, in 1847. She was young only abt 15 yrs old, and pregnant already, I think. Perhaps Caroline is William's Step Daughter, but still carried his name? The only reason I think this is because of the different census records showing her born in Al, then later in Miss. With Father listed born in Al, then later in Georgia.. the mother's birthplace is still the same in both.
In 1860 William and Susan are on the census with Three children, Clemantine, Caroline, & Mary. I think Clematine is William's child from another marriage? She is too old to be Susan's daughter, with only a 10 yr difference. This would be right if Susan only had two children.
Also listed is William's Mother, Susan Quinley (Susannah Read) she is listed as a housekeeper, 69 yrs old, b in GA abt 1791.
They have neighbors in the 1870 census John Read Quinley & Elvie/Elva
Also if you don't already know.. There are TWO 1870 census for the same people and same location with just a few age differences, not sure why..
SO I guess my question is...
Are John R & William brothers?
Did William have a first marriage & child, then who?
Do you have any info on William & Susan's children?
Do you know anything about Caroline Quinley and her daughter Victoria York?
If Florida close to Conecuh Alabama? Is it possible that Caroline did marry for a few years, the later in life Victoria married a cousin or something..lol. Not Sure!
Anyway I think that the Parents of William & John are Archibald & Susannah.
Sorry if I went on a little too much:) I am just a little excited to finally found out new info.
Also any info on John Henry Golden ( montgomery co. texas) and his parents are needed. thanks:)
