Re: Cornelius Bussey - OH & VA

In Reply to: Cornelius Bussey - OH & VA by Tina Hursh of 822

I have come across two Cornelius Bussey's in my research. One is the father, born in 1833, & one is the son, born in 1861. Here is what I have: The entire family shows up in the 1870 census in New Garden Township, Virginia - Cornelius, wife Ann, children Mary, Cornelius, Nannie, Virginia (Jennie),& Cora. Then in the 1880 census, Ann, Nannie, Jennie, & Cora are in Mexico, Missouri, & Ann is a widow. The 1870 census shows that Cornelius senior was working as a wheelwright. I posit that the entire family went to Mexico, Missouri, which was the jumping off place for persons traveling into Texas for many years, & that is where Cornelius senior died, but this is just a guess. My interest in the family began with Nannie Kate, who was married to John Granger in Fulton, Missouri, in 1882. John & Kate spent most of their married life in Texas, both of them dying in 1916 in Gainesville, Bell County, Texas. He was a railroad conductor. They owned a home & quite a lot of other real estate in Texas. They raised three children, one of whom was my husband's grandfather, John Dean Granger. Hope this helps. If there other information I can help with, let me know.
