Re: Charles Andrew Auten 1862 Illinois

In Reply to: Re: Charles Andrew Auten 1862 Illinois by Matthew Wilson of 514

Hi Matthew,

Charles apparently (one person's version) had 10 siblings, but I only have 3 names: James Edward b.8 Dec 1861, Charles A. b.19Dec 1862, and John C. b. 1867, all born in Cerro Gordo, Ill.

As for Joseph's own 9 siblings, these I know are correct except for one sister, Delia/Martha, whom I cannot confirm. There is one tantalizing suggestion of her existence - the mention of Martha Auten who died in 1855 (see Wolfe letters #1 in ATEN WEBSITE, under "Aten/Auten Letters Link") We can find no other Martha in the whole extended family; perhaps this was the mysterious Delia (the name Delia came from another unconfirmed source).

As for the details of Joseph's siblings, this is a big load of data. Do you want to download the gedcom? or just get the sibs without their families? You can contact me directly at nanvose@hotmail.com if you would like to have the whole thing. Otherwise I will give you the bare bones here:
Delia/Martha d 1855 (unconfirmed data);
James Wesley b 13 Nov 1809 PA moved to Nebraska (my line);
John b 1810 PA;
Harriet b 1812;
David b 11 Apr 1816 Carroll Co Ohio;
Mary C. b 18 Sept 1818 Carroll Co;
Abraham A. b 21 Aug 1821 Carroll Co;
Nicholas b 10 Jan 1825 Carroll Co;
Jacob Sr. b 6 Aug 1826 Carroll Co; and
Joseph b 1830 d. Illinois

James Wesley and his extended family moved to Nebraska in 1871; all of his siblings (except Joseph) seem to have stayed on and died in Owen Co. Indiana where the whole extended family of Johnathon Wesley Aten/Auten and Mary Miller moved in about 1850.

Let me know if your curiosity requires more. nancy
