Larry Sullivan Sat, 14 Mar 1998 03:36:38 SURNAME: FRANCISCO
Looking for traces of our FRANCISCO ancestors, at least two of whom were born in Morgan County when it was part of Virginia. Family records show my gg-grandfather, Abraham, was born in Morgan County in 1795 and an older brother, Hiram, was born there in 1794. Their father's name might have been John FRANCISCO. Another of Abraham's brothers is believed to have been named Absalom.
At least some family members apparently left Morgan County in the early part of the 19th century, because Abraham, Absalom, Hiram and John were all found in 1820 in Hocking County, OH. This John might be the patriarch of the clan or another brother. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sharon Banzhoff Fri, 30 Jan 1998 21:54:34 SURNAMES: HARE, FLORA
Hineman Hare appears in the 1870 Morgan Co. Census with Aurelia ?? with the two sons by his first wife and James Hare and Florence, my great-great grandmother.
Would anyone have an idea what Aurelia's last name might have been? The Hares seemed to have strong ties to the Flora's so perhaps she could have been a Flora. I noticed in the 1860 census that only first initials was used for members of a household, other than the head of household. There was a Largent family living close to the Floras that had a female with the initial A. that would have been the age of Aurelia at that time.
