This is my brick wall. I am looking for information on Willis or Joseph Huey. Not 100% sure of his name. My grandfather thought it might be Willis.
Willis Joseph Huey was born abt 1843 or 1846 in Alabama and died sometime before 1900 in Colorado. I was told this story by my grandparents (Wallace was Josephs grandson): "Joseph was good at geology. He migrated to Colorado and worked in mines. He had been called away to work in another mine and was never seen or heard from again. The family returned to Lindale, TX. He is listed with his family on the 1885 Mesa Colorado census. His wife Clementine is listed on the 1900 census in Lindale, Smith, Texas as a widow."
Facts are: (1) listed as Joseph Hewey on 1880 US Census in Tom Green County, Texas (age 37) with Clementine and 2 children. (2) Listed as J H Huey on 1885 Colorado State Census with N C Huey and children. (3)Listed as W. H. Hughey on marriage certificate to Narcissus Clementine Fleming Apr 29, 1871. (4) Listed as Willis Huey on Lillie June Huey Thomas (daughter) Death Certificate. (5) Listed as Joe Huey on Gussie Lee Huey (son) death certificate.
(6) Had 6 children: William Amos Huey b. 1874, Carrie Ola Huey (Goodman) b. 1879, Lillie June Huey (Thomas) b. 1885, Gussie Lee Huey b. 1887, Dasie Huey (Vaughn) b.1883, Thomas "TT" Huey b.1881.
