Steve ~

Do you think the Mary and Elizabeth Stobaugh in this 1850 census might be ones in your profiles.  They are both the right age.  

This may mean Stobaugh is not her LNAB, but from a previous marriage.  I will do some further research.  

What do you think?

By the way, I have no connections to them other than name, that I am aware of.  But my Cole's were from Tennessee.

"United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MCDZ-68P : 9 November 2014), Mary E Stobaugh, Decatur county, Decatur, Tennessee, United States; citing family 39, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).

Her brother Augustus is also on the 1860 census with her and U T Cole listed as brother in law that leads me to believe she was a stobaugh first.

I do find that 1850 census interesting.

My great great grandfather Chesley Stobaugh moved to the same area about the same time, however i have made no connection and he came from Kentucky

Thanks for the help
It just dawned on me that there is a flaw in my theory.  Being, how does A.G. Stobaugh fit in.  I see he isn't yet connected.  Is there some doubt that he is Mary's brother?  It might make more sense than an in-law maybe, maybe not.

Will let you know if I find something.
I see.  Though I see no reference to A. G. being his brother-in-law in the 1860 census.  Perhaps you have prior knowledge of their relationship.  

Good luck making connections!
ok it wasn't the census, its a history of fannin County Texas link. It's on one of their profiles I will find it.
This is the link that gives indication they were brother in laws

I see.  Sorry for your trouble.

Hello, Steve ~

I did a bit more research on the Tennessee Cole's.  This may or may not be a coincidence.  But I found a U.T. Cole (abt. same age) in that same 1850 census record (2 pages over) for Mary E. and Elizabeth Stobaugh.

If they are in fact the couple in your profile, I had a couple thoughts.  One being, the brother-in-law reference could have been a casual one.  Instead of saying, his wife's brother-in-law.  Or Elizabeth could have been illegitimate etc.  Either one would be difficult to confirm at this point.

Here is U.T Cole in 1850 (with possible brother):

"United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MCDZ-Y3F : 9 November 2014), U T Cole, Decatur county, Decatur, Tennessee, United States; citing family 21, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.). 

 

That's most likely him, gives occupation as merchant, around 1860 through the Civil War, there was a business" Stobaugh & Cole", or "Cole and Stobaugh" in Fannin County Texas, plenty of hits on that in familysearch, this may prove to be helpful in getting these people connected, I'm off for a few hours thanks for your help.
