Again thank you very much for your responce. Looks like my belief that the older Hamilton Risher moved from SC to Florida was incorrect. That belief was based on the fact that several of his kin moved from Colleton County, SC to the Jacksonville-St. Augustine area between 1891 and 1900. My grandparents were among those who made that move but due to my grandmother's being homesick they returned to SC.
The 1870 and 1880 census do not show the older Hamilton having a middle name, In 1870 he was living with his widowed mother and two sisters. Based on the age of his oldest child, Launie, in the 1880 census, Hamilton and Ann probably were married in 1871, which accounts the 39 years showed in the 1910 census. Hamilton and Ann would both have been about 60 years old in 1910. Fom the 1920 census that you posted yesterday, one would tend to believe that Hamilton passed away in Vicksburrg.
Sometimes the information provided in the census is misleading. More than likely the Risher, Frank H shown in the 1910 census was the younger Hamilton Franklin Risher. [The 1920 census showed him as Hamilton F; 1930 as Hamilton
The younger Hamilton Risher who was 2 years old in 1880 would have been 32 in 1910.
Possibly the younger Hamilton's and Gertrude's child had been recently born, not even a year old. The child may have passed away after 1910 since Bernard is their only child shown in the 1920 census.
One can't help but wonder if Bernard married and had children. His children if any would more than likely be in their mid to early 60's.
