Re: Isaac J. PUGH b 1835 Virginia.
I am currently at an impasse in Chambers County, Alabama with no escape route in sight. Perhaps you can help. I welcome all suggestions to solve this brick wall.
Research reveals the following:
- Teenage boy age 15 Isaac J. PUGH living in the home of Andrew Williamson in 1850 Chambers County, AL with no relative in sight. This is my impasse.
- Isaac J. PUGH b 1835 VA - d 21 March 1870.
- 1850 Census -Isaac J. PEW (sp) -Chambers County AL, age 15 years enumerated with Andrew Williamson family.
- 26 December 1851 mar @age 16 to Sarah Mary Jane Day age 23 years, Chambers County, AL. Andrew Williamson was surety and paid $200.00.
- 1860 Census Tallapoosa County, AL record census enumerator spelled his name PUGH
- 1862 enlisted Civil War and served as Pvt. Co K, Louina Guards, 14th Regiment, captured and injured -prisoner of war
- May22, 1865-paroled at Talladega, Alabama
- 1870 Clay County Alabama Census-Lineville reflects the family of Isaac J. PUGH
- 21 March 1870, Isaac J. PUGH died, source pension affidavit of widow
- 1880 Randolph County, Al Census record-Isaac J. PUGH listed as head of house
Unresolved questions are the following:
- Why was Isaac at age 15 years living with the Williamson family?
- What is the name of Isaac J. PUGH's Mother and Father?
- What is his connection to any known PUGH line?
- Did Isaac really die in 1870?
- Why is he listed on the1870 and 1880 Census for Randolph County, Alabama if he died on 21 March 1870 1870?
I look forward to any responses to this brick wall.
