I am writing in regards to Albert and Prudence Popplewell. I am doing my genealogy, and my grandma had a bible with the name Nancy Caroline Poplar as my grandfather's grandmother [my gggrandmother}. Through many hours of research, I realized her name could not have been Poplar, because there are just not any. My family was in Russell Co., KY for generations.
Anyway, I finally found in the 1850 Russell Co. census, a NANCY C. POPLARWELL, same birth year as my Nancy, . She is 8 y.o. in this census as obtained from Kyroots.com:
31 230 230 Poplarwell Albert 38 M farmer Ky X
32 230 230 Poplarwell Prudence 38 F Ky
33 230 230 Poplarwell Samantha J. 15 F Ky X
34 230 230 Poplarwell Leo H. 11 M Ky X
35 230 230 Poplarwell Nancy C. 8 F Ky X
36 230 230 Poplarwell William C. 5 M Ky
37 230 230 Poplarwell David C. 3 M Ky
38 230 230 Poplarwell Margaret E. 2/12 F Ky
In the 1860 Census, she is married to my gggrandfather, W.G. Hill, and the Poplarwells are now in the Census as Popplewells.
Nancy Caroline is a sister that is not documented in some other research I've come across, maybe because of the 1850 Census taker's mistake, and the fact that in 1860 she was married to William Green Hill. I would love more info, and feel free to e-mail me if you want more info, as well.
William Green Hill and Nancy Caroline had a child Viola Hill, who married Ivy Whittle, my great-grandfather.
