Hi Eva! I wish I knew whether or not your Elizabeth and mine were related! At this point, I've not been able to connect my Elizabeth Githens with the other Githens living in Greenup Co. KY. during the same time period. I'd be interested in knowing more about your Nicholas Co. KY family. My Elizabeth married there in 1793.

From Stewarts and Allied Families by James Douglas Stewart:
"The first entry in the Stewart family Bible is with a quill pen and records the marriage of Matthew Stewart to Elizabeth Githens, 30 May 1793 in Nicholas, Co., Kentucky." Henry Stewart posted bond.

From Greenup Co. Kentucky Deaths: Elizabeth Stewart, 82,(nee'Githens) female widow, farmer's wife, born Pennsylvania, parents not known. Died September 19, 1855 Dysentery.

I did find this family in the census:
1840 Nicholas Co. Ky.
household of John W. Githens

1 male under 5 2 females 5 -10
1 male 10 - 15 1 female 10 -15
1 male 30 - 40 2 females 20-30

It looks as if your Elizabeth could fit in nicely with them, but I have no other information on them now.
Lets stay in touch. Perhaps we could help each other as we are in the right general area. Wish I knew more! Thank you. Cindy Lowe lowe@frontiernet.net
