Menchew Family Genealogy Forum
Rhoda b. ca 1808 LA (per the 1850 Newton Co., TX census) is said to have been a MINCHEW. She had married Sampson WATSON about 1825. His family had lived in St Helena Par., LA. He and his wife and children were found in the following census: Rapides Par. 1830, Catahoula Par. 1840, Newton Co., TX 1850, Rapides Par. 1860. I didn't find them in the 1870 census, but he and Rhoda are said to have died in Beauregard Par. in 1880.
There was a Moses MINCHEY in the St Helena Par. census of 1850. I didn't find the Menchew or Minchew name in the early LA census indexes.
These are the names they gave their children: Rebecca, possibly Lucretia, Charlotte, Sarah, Jeptha (male), Nancy Ann, Delilah, Dicey, Betsey Ann, and possibly Manuel or Maverick.
