I was at Blair Library last night and checked the index for Boatright/Boatwright and Rushing; I did not find a listing for either surname.

Thank you very much for checking this!

I am sooo stuck in trying to prove/disprove who the William Boatwright listed in the 1840 Washington Co, AR census [as well as late 1830 Washington Co land records].

Unless there is another William Boatwright in this area, I feel he must be 'my' William, b. 1814 IL, who moved to MO by 1850. Do you have any suggestions as to where else I can look to determine exactly who this William was?

Or - if the wife's name of the Washington Co AR, William Boatwright, can be discovered, I will at least be that much closer to getting to the bottom of this mystery.
