Can you tell me the female children of Jonathan Bost please if they are known and when they where born if that is also known.

We are seeking the parents of Louisa "Vicy" Best

Groom: Logan Mitcham
Bride: Lueser Best
Bond Date: 22 Jan 1829
Bond #: 000074572
Level Info: North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868
ImageNum: 000623
County: Lincoln
Record #: 01 090
Bondsman: Ezekiel Hanks
Witness: JXX Seagle, Justice of the Peace

Logan Mitchum the son of Nathaniel Mitchum and Jemima Reynolds

In 1830 she was listed age 20-30
1840 she was listed age 20-30
1850 she was age 38 named Vicy Micham
1860 she and Logan where seperated she was listed as Levicey Micheam age 40 or 41 (Hard to make out)
Logan was living with his mother Jemima Mitchum
Logan dies we think between 1860-1870. She had 3 children listed with her on this census that where not with them in 1850.

By 1870 she moved to Cape Girardeau Co Mo Byrd Township Jackson and was living with her son Lawson (listed as Lonson) Mitchum she as listed as Eliza Mitchum age 57 b NC and she has this same 3 kids Susanna b 1843, Dulcenia b Jan 30-1847 and James M b 1847 I am still trying to find them in 1850.

Louisa died in Feb 1875 her grave and that of her sons along with others where destroyed by a flood from a nearby river and the grave markers that where left after the flood the people who owned the land took the stones to make a foundation for there barn. Such a sad display of stupidness if you ask me.

Logan and Louisa's first child we know of was born on 12-18-1832 however they did have a female child on the 1830 census listed as under age 5 this same female child was age 10-15 on the 1840 we have never been able to determine who she was or is. She quite possibly could be a younger sister to Logan or a sister to Louisa. We know Logan had sisters that young.
