Augustin Ticer / Dowdy census research

  of 218

I went to the Library last night to look up Augustin Ticer and Lucy (Dowdy) Ticer in various census. I didn't get much. CAN ANYONE HELP?

I NEVER could find anything about Augustin in ANY census. After scouring all of the state indexes for Ticer, Ticor, Tiser, Tisor, Tycer, Tycor, Tyser, Tysor, and Tizer, Tyzer, Tizor, Tyzor....YUK.

I even pulled out those GRS CDs my Library owns and performed searches for all states for most years. Unbelievable......However...

There was an "Austin Tiser" in Darke Co OH in the 1830 census and an "Austin A. Tyser" in next door Miami Co OH in 1840. He was born betw 1770 and 1780. However, there was no wife in 1840 and a female (wife?) in 1830 who was born 1790-1800.

I had assumed this was Augustin's HH. However....

In a statewide OH marriage book, I came across...

Austin Ticer m. Susannah Wright Jun 29 1809 Warren Co OH.

I'm no longer sure "Austin" is really "Augustin".

I started doubting whether Augustin EVER was in Ohio (except for a convincing Chatham NC abstract), but I did find ONE Ohio newspaper account..

"New Series" No 42 Vol 1 Friday May 5 1815. Andrew Mack reports that Uriah Gates and Asa Hamilton have appraised a horse found by Augustin Tyzer of Millcreek Township, Hamilton Co.

But Augustin and Lucy do NOT show up in 1820 census....and Hamilton Co is a burned county (of course)

Interestingly, I found the following in census and other records...

1840 Hamilton Co census pg 186
Rachel Ticer (no males in HH) - 000001001

In other words, the younger female was born 1800-1810 and the older female was born 1770-1780.

Cinncinatti Daily Commercial 1858-1899 Death Notices
pg 5. Rachel Ticer, notice date 10 Dec 1875, Death date 8 Dec 1875, Age 74 and 7 months.

Rachel Ticer (the old Rachel Dowdy???) was born between 1800 and 1801.

And of course, she doesn't show up in census indexes for 1850 nor 1860.

There is a John Ticer in 1860 Hamilton census and a Jerick Tizer, and a Laura E. Tizer in the same census. I suppose, Rachel could be living in those HHs. I didn't look.

The Ticer name and it's derivations are very RARE anywhere. I even looked under Tice or Tison (and derivations) for Augustin.

The only other marriages are Jane Tiser m. Andrew Voss Dec 19 1820 Hamilton Co OH A-1 400 (which we knew already) and Sarah Tysor m. James Bridges Apr 10 1819 Scioto Co OH.

I looked in 1810 Hamilton tax lists (landowners), Index to OH wills and admins to 1850 (only Gideon Ticer of Clinton OH), and 1812 OH residents (land owner tax lists)......Nothing.

I then started looking back in North Carolina for Augustin to see when he came to OH (at least prior to 1815 we know). But I didn't find him in 1810, 1800 etc. That's when I started looking at other states, and then pulled out the GRS census CDs for all states
