I have checked your documents regarding Weeden Thomas Record/s.
1. Birth record:
It was transcribed as Weeden P. Records, b. 30 Aug 1858, Pendleton KY; Father: Josiah C. Record (no s), Mother was CAROLIN INDLES, b. Germany. (zoom in on that name...the transcription was off very much!)It is NOT MILLER! Weeden's middle inital was also transcribed as a 'P' vice 'T'.
2. Death Record:
transcribed as WOODEN Thomas Record, died 18 Aug 1948, age 89 yrs. b. 31 Aug 1858, married Minerva Ball.
Father: Joseph Calloway Record (FYI, Joseph and Josiah are the same name). You have the right people.
Mother: Mary Katherine INDUS; very misspelled, have seen her name as Catherine Caroline Inders, ENders, etc.
The informant was Josiah & Caroline's son, John F.
3. in the 1860 census, Pendleton, KY:
Josiah C. Record age 42, $100, b. KY, day laborer
Caroline C. 34 b. Baden Germ.
Mary 8
WEEDEN T. age 2, b. KY
(this confirms the parentage of Weeden Thomas Record)
You have to allow for transcription errors, and recently I'm beginning to think someone is the MIddle East is doing the transcriptions. I have seen RECORD transcribed as RECOND. Absolutely pitiful! Hope this helps a little. One more thing, this lineage is very well researched and established. You may feel free to go ahead with your research....also Robert, keep in mind that Caroline was of German birth, so her accent was probably thick, thus English transcription/translations were off, as well as the fact that spelling just wasn't inmportant back then. You'll notice Record with and without an 's' in the same document, etc. This is what makes genealogy so much fun!!
