I was missing the 1860 Census as I was searching for Althea Caroline Harris. I will get with the lady who posted R. McKissick in Polk Co, TN cemetery and see how she came up with it being Abrahams first wife. I will show her the link to Rosa as well. I am a member of the First Family of Polk County, TN, they have information on the Nave Family so will also get back with them and see what other info they may have as well.
Althea was my great great grandmother, mother to William Wood McKissack Sr. Abraham was his father. do yo think this the Rosann McKissick in Mo is Abrahams first wife? At that time perios, would they have moved her body to TN to be buried in her ex husbands cemetery ? Althea is in Talpa, Coleman, Texas. William , their son is in William is in Winters, Runnels, Texas.
The only info I have on Roseanna is her first name and no children born to Roseanna and Abraham. My info was from 3 of Abraham s granddaughters. The tie to her last name being Nave I s the Polk County Historical Society.
Thank you for all and any help you may be able to offer.
thank you so much for your input on the McKissicks. I do show in the 1860 census mary age 25, Adaline age 21 and George age 5 living with Abraham. I am confused on his first wife , Rosanna as well, it doesnt make sense to me that she would be Rosanna Nave as she passed away in 1900 in Mo, but R. McKissick is buried in polk co Tn in the McKissick Cemetery where Abraham is buried. Any thoughts ? I cannot find any divorce sources either. Thanks diane
Part of the problem could be that Saluda County was made from Edgefield County in 1896. This may be why both counties are mentioned.
Buried in Edgefield County in1877 and that part of Edgefield County became Saluda County in 1896.
Thank you for the message about Salathiel Dollar. I think you are right. With the youngest son Joseph being born 1858 in Georgia. I think Salathiel had to be still living about 1857? The profile was adopted by me. I am interested in the line because of the mother Hannah Prater. I am related to the Prater line.
Hi John. I see you have been putting in a lot of good work on the profile for Ruth Beasley/Beezley. I just added a note to Ruth's profile with added information. If you wish, I'd be happy to discuss the matter further.
Hi John, George C Deloach had applied with the Eastern Cherokee and applied for his children as well, the document I found stated he was denied due to some lacking information. I had a house fire in Jan. of this year and lost some of my documents. I am trying to find those again. I love here in Bristol, Tennessee and am close to Carter county, TN are you close to this area.
