Interesting Finds

List interesting finds to share with the guest at the end of the week
  • Mary Ann Hyland and William Bannon married in West Bromwich in 1861. Her brother Peter Hyland married Elizabeth Bannon. It appears that they married on the same day as they appear in the same register entry. A copy of the marriage record was found online which revealed where in Ireland they were from. Both Mary Ann and William were from Queens County (now County Laois).
  • James S. Martin (abt.1797-aft.1880) is listed as a slave owner in the 1850 and 1860 US Census Slave Schedules.
  • Drew's second great grand uncle John Hyland (1841-) was bankrupt in 1879.
  • In 1867 Peter Hyland (1836-1912) was accused of assaulting a police officer in Oldbury. The charge was dismissed. Also accused was Michael Delaney. Delaney was Peter's mothers maiden name.
  • Benjamin Foshee was sued for debt at least five times mostly in 1848-50, right before he married Sarah Neely. Sarah Neely's father George did not leave Sarah or her Foshee children anything in his will, but did mention her children from her first marriage "the children of Addison Grant, my Grandchildren". And left them money in trust. He likely did not approve of Sarah's second marriage.
  • Charles King Jr, Drew's uncle was killed in a homicide in 1869. He and a man named Thomas Patterson met on his way home an engaged in an argument that turned deadly. He was found the next day by Horace Cunningham.

  • George Neely Supplied the Revolutionary war militia with supplies in 1780 and 1781. He's registered as a DAR ancestor.
