In case anyone is looking for this information, I found William Pendarvis, his wife, Nancy, and three of their seven children on the 1860 Federal Census. They were living in Ocala, Marion County, Florida. William is listed as a "Planter" and his age is given as 35 years old. His wife, Nancy Ann (Hope) Pendarvis is listed and her occupation is listed as "Domestic". Her age is given as 28 years old. Three of their sons are listed: Richard, age 7 years; Syrus, age 4 years and George, age 3 years. Their place of birth has all of them as Florida.
William and Nancy (Hope) Pendarvis were the parents of John Henry Pendarvis. He being born about 1870 in Moss Bluff, Florida. John Henry Pendarvis is my dad's, actually step-dad's, Marvin Eugene Pendarvis' father. Recently I found out that John Henry was still living in 1930 with his family in Clearwater, Pinellas County, Florida. So I was mistaken about what Dad said about John Henry having died in 1926.
So, I would still like to find out where John Henry was living when he met and married Josephine Barnett. I am sure that it had to be in Central Florida. If anyone finds their marriage record will you please tell me where it is. Any information about where William and Nancy will also be appreciated. Thank you, Brandon Flowers
