My Great Great Grandfather, Great Grandfather and Grandfather had lived in Jackson County in the vicinity of Bloomfiled Township.

He would have lived in Bloomfield between 1849 and 1869. Since he was not in the Census of 1860, I presume he may have died sometime between 1850 and 1860. (He was in the 1850 Census). My great great grandmother was either Elizabeth or Sarah (not sure which?) WILLIAMS DAVIS. She was also in the 1850 Census, but not in the 1860 Census. Therefore, I presume she may have also died in Jackson County along with her
husband Evan DAVIS (DAVIES). My great grandfather was Thomas Evan DAVIS (DAVIES). He married Elisabeth
BUTLER (birth name) WILLIAMS (adopted name). Elisabeth was born in Gallipollis, Galia County, Ohio in 1839. Both Thomas Evan Davis and Elisabeth Butler Williams were married on 22 July, 1858, Probate Court of Gallipollis. Do you have any suggestions as to how I might find any information on the above?

I'm looking for any information concerning Smith POWERS and his wife, Martha GILLIAN who moved to KY from Jackson Co. Ohio. I believe they are the parents of Elwood, Laura, John, Coleman, Hortense, Sally, Elwood, and Rush. Smith was also Hiram's father, but Martha would have been his step-mother. All of these children resided in what is now Boyd County, Kentucky. The children were born c. 1850-1880- Elwood was born Sept. 14, 1875, in Johnson Co. KY, and Hiram was born in 1855- but we don't know where. Family lore says that the family originally came from VA to Ohio, where there was a "falling out" that resulted in at least one of the brothers moving to KY. If true, Smith had at least one brother who remained in Jackson County. If you can provide any link, I will be happy to share any/all of the information I've accumulated.
