Hello, I am trying to ascertain if the HESTAND family living in Jackson Co IL in 1850 was connected to the ones in Monroe Co. KY and Jackson Co TN. They are neighbors to families named RICH, SKIPWORTH and MYERS who may also have been from the same areas in KY/TN. I research RICH and SKIPWORTH and am wondering what the connection might be to my lines. I am trying to prove that the Rich and Skipworth families in IL were connected to my lines in Monroe Co. KY and Jackson Co. TN.
The names on the 1850 census for Jackson Co. IL are :
Abraham, age 48 KY
Mary, age 52 TN
Martin, age 23 IL
William B. age 15 IL
Nancy, age 13 IL
Clarissa, age 11 IL
other names in this household are John WOOLSEY,Anna MCKINNEY and child Samuel.
In the next household, there is:
Elijah Hestand,age 26 TN
Pelinia ? age 18, IL (she was a FURLOW)
Any help appreciated. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
