Classification: Query
Surnames: Ishmael - Mitchell - Smothers - Gilbert-Williams - Threlkeld-Stover
I would like to find this family after 1850. I have in my notes that Macagah died in San Augustine Co. Texas. Macagah is the brother of my g-g grandfather, Charles Casswell Ishmael.

1850 Franklin Co. Census
Macagah Ishmel 35
Mary Ishmel 30
Eliza Ishmel 15
Benj Ishmel 14
Marion Ishmel 10
Polly Ishmel 6

Macagah Ishmael, appears to have farmed out his children. I think they are brothers and sisters.

There is another person that we can't find before 1880 when he married Lydia Gilbert in Perry Co.(adjoining Franklin)--CALVIN PINKNEY Ishmael, b. abt 1854 and may be on the 1860 census with Macajah.

If anyone has any Ishmael info about Ishmaels in Franklin Co., or knows why these children lived with other people, please post it.

Neighboring counties are Marion, Hamilton, Wayne, Washington and Perry. I only found Ishmael's in Franklin Co. plus Calvin Ishmaell in Perry Co.
