Through tedious process of elimination in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, etc, I believe I MAY have placed my Henry Kirksey as the son of Alex C. Kirksey and Mary J. Pillow , who are in Lauderdale Co. TN in 1880 Census. He is Henry Kirksey, 17 years old, living with parents in 1880 and Wm. H. Kirksey, 7 years old and living with a Lewis Moore family in Lawrence Co, TN. in 1870. Alex Kirksey and his wife are not in TN census in 1870 and I'm not sure why Wm H and his 5 year old sister Laurena are with the Moore family. In 1860, 3 years before Henry Kirksey's birth, the two families are living fairly close together in Lawrence Co. An Andrew Kirksey, age 30 is also living close by and appears unmarried, living with another family. Andrew Kirksey married Mary E. Moore, dau of Lewis Moore, in Lawrence Co TN in Dec of 1860.
If anyone has any information about possible parents of Alex C and Andrew Kirksey of Lawrence Co. TN, please post to this forum---IF before 5 Aug 2001--- as we are currently in Salt Lake City and I am spending my time at the FHL. Hopefully, some one of you can help me get a bit more information on family of Alex C. Kirksey before I head back home to Florida in early Aug.
I also checked 1900 soundex for TN and no William /W.H. or Henry Kirksey within 15 years of age of the above Wm Henry Kirksey is in the 1900 TN Soundex. This gives me hope that he truly is my great grandfather who married Martha Cumi Horton Lee in Jan of 1886 in Wood Co. TX and who moved to Fannin Co. TX and died there abt 1895.
You can also contact me at my temporary (while traveling) email of <firstname.lastname@example.org> - before 5 Aug 2001.
