I have worked many years on my family tree. Of course there's a set of grandparents that I cannot find very much information about (I have most of their children's names)
However, I cannot seem to find much information about them (beyond 1870/1860 census).
I would love to figure out, just where my grandfather originated from? He is George Washington Minnis b.1830 d.1879 m. Priscilla Farley.
There no records previous to 1860/70, as if he possibly located from another state (Which Ive been searching as well) I hope someone stumbles across this and is able to open a "door"
