My name is Sue Goddard Lackey and my Gr., Gr., Gr. Grandmother was Elizabeth Yates who was born in Pennsylvania in 1794/96. She is on the 1850 census saying that she was 56 years old and born in Pennsylvania. About 1820 in Pennsylvania she marries Benjamin Heacox or Haycox/Hickok/Hickox/Hickock, born in Connecticut 1794. He was a founder, in other words he had a furnace to melt ore. Now I know that the spelling is different but in those days every thing was in phonics and who ever was writing it down spelled it the way they hear it.
Benjamin and Elizabeth had 8 children, they lived in Fairfield Township, Westmoreland County, (now Indiana County), Pennsylvania near the Conemaugh River (on the east side of PA). I know the Yate's/Yeatts family was in Bucks County, PA (on the east side of PA)beginning in the late 1600's so they were in Pennsylvania for some time.
My question is do you have anything on her. Can you help me find the family in which an Elizabeth is out of? I can't pick her up on another census because they move to Clay County, Indiana in 1858 and she dies within months after arriving. Any help would be appreciated.
