Re: Hiram DeRossett from Menifee, s/o Preston

In Reply to: Who is Hiram DeRossett from Menifee? by Tami Moorcroft of 356

Hiram was one of the younger sons of Preston DuRossett and Lucinda Benson, maybe the youngest. In 1869, Menifee County was formed from a portion of Bath County, just as Bath was once formed from Montgomery County. What this means is that the families did not move, the county lines did.

I have copied the same DeRosset/Darosset/Durossett etc information apparently sent you as well as some census information for 1870-1880 Menifee Co. I previously had Bath County records.

Email me directly and I'll send you what I have if you need this particular line--Preston's.
