Elizabeth Missouri Weathersby Ann, MsMarion left you a message that “the 1860 census is rarely accepted for linage proof because it did not list the relationship to head of household.” This is true and that is why I have not expanded my Weathersby lineage until now. In about 1960, 56 years ago, I became aware that my parents talked a lot about kinfolk while sitting around the dining room table, and when my aunts and uncles came to visit. At an early age while living in California I became interested in our family and the history of our family trees. I sat down with my mother years ago and ask her dozens of questions about our family. She told me her father’s mother was Elizabeth Missouri Weathersby. I wrote all of the names down on paper and when I moved to the Chattanooga, Tennessee area years later, I began to research our extended family with the information I had. There was no internet or personal computers then just micro-film and a genealogy book I bought of empty family pages. I will skip to now. As a member of Ancestry.com I joined the DNA program and the results have been remarkable. It has provided me with direct information about my linage with the Weathersby’s. MsMarion may not be my direct ancestor but the Weathersby’s are my kinfolk. With Family Tree Maker and Ancestry.com I have proven evidence that Elizabeth Missouri Weathersby of Lawrence County Mississippi is my great grandmother, and her father Duncan is my great-great grandfather. So I said all of this to say, “Thank You Very Much” for listing the census evidence in Find A Grave. I realize you did a great deal of work to do so. Charles Tyler
1860 US Federal Census You left a message on my Find A Grave contributor page regarding using this census to prove parentage. The 1860 census is rarely accepted for lineage proof because it did not list the relationship to head of household. This census plus additional documentation can be used in preponderance of evidence analysis. The Find a Grave person you wrote me about is not my direct ancestor so I have no need or interest in placing them in a specific family line.
