I am updating my "meissner_all" database at RootsWeb. Living persons born after 1930 will show only surnames.
I am changing the name of the first wife of Hilary I - I had her listed as Abigail but will now be shown as Amelia. She died before 1850, possibly due to complications from the birth of Hilary II. The 1850 census shows second wife Sarah A Bush (age 28, b TN) with the twins Joseph Bush and R J Bush age 5, and H B Bush age 2. There is an additional line on the census page, rather mysteriously. No name is shown on the census microfilm, only age 24 is shown - this could be Hilary I, or he may have died before 1850 and a non-member of the family lives with them (??).
