No, actually I couldn't tell, you posted a good query, including names, dates and locations. You'd be surprised at how many people who think they know what they're doing post poor queries, with just general information, and the really frustrating part is they often have a very common surname, too. LOL

In fact, you said you didn't have access to the censuses is what led me to look at those for you, otherwise I would have thought you probably already had that info.

Not everything is online, yet, and what is can have errors (Oh, no). You might visit your local Family History Center, volunteers will gladly try and help you. You will pick up some dandy handy hints, also. They can show you what is different about the various records on FamilySearch. The IGI, Ancestral File and Pedigree Resource File. Just be aware any and all records can have errors. The IGI shows my gr gr grdmthr married to her son. Now, her parents were first cousins, but even us rednecks draw the line, she did NOT marry her son. (^_^)

Have you used GenWeb sites? My two favorites are GenForum and GenWeb. Totally different formats.

Happy New Year. (^~)
