Eli Self In reviewing my entire database, I apologize for not looking it up rather than doing things from memory. His first wife Minerva had 7 children, so that is him and his children on that census. I have no info on Minerva only that she passed after 1864.
I will add this data to the memorial so it is accurate as to children. Thanks for getting my genealogy hat back on.
RE: Eli Alfred Self 1825- I have linked what I can link. There were some discrepancies with the Manasco Cemetery in Louisiana, so I will not attempt to take that further. I have linked him to his parents and grandparents, although by doing so it created duplicates. I have the Berryhill genealogy and all my data is from that and the work of a Thelma Cornfeld. Her work can be seen at " Creek Indian By Blood - The Story of John Berryhill and Elizabeth Derris aw and Their Descendants" by Thelma Nolan Cornfeld, 502 pages (c) 1993.
I have also reviewed Creek Nation records and Mount Tabor Indian Community records of the Berryhill's in Rusk County, Texas beginning with the arrival of Bill Berryhill in 1848. I would love to link all of his children.
As to the Census, the 1870 only lists two of their children Emma Arnice Self (b. LA. December 29, 1867) & Laura Elane Self (b. August 28, 1869, d. TX June 25, 1878). Both are listed on the census, but since Eli wasn't married until 1867, the older children are other relatives. I would have to do more research to find who they belong to. However, I am convinced he is the same. person on the census.
My database notes on him are as follows: "Alfred and Martha Ann lived in Sabine Parish Louisiana. They had nine children of which six were born in Louisiana. Around 1878, Alfred and Martha Ann moved their family to Rusk County, Texas. Alfred and Martha Ann stayed in Texas for a few years. They had another daughter born to them in Texas. One son by Alfred's first wife, Minerva, died in Rusk County, Texas, and two of his and Martha Ann's daughters died there. In the Fall of 1881, Alfred and Martha Ann moved to the Creek Nation, Indian Territory, and settled near Eufaula."
The other child that died in Rusk County was Anna Belle Self (b. LA February 15, 1875, d. TX June 21, 1878). All others died in the Creek Nation (Oklahoma)
I don't know if this answers your questions or just creates more. I am not in a position to do anymore research on Berryhill lines, except those that stayed in Rusk & Smith counties of east Texas. Several today, especially Posey lines, live between Overton and Troup, Texas today.
RE: Asa Jefferson Manasco 1881-1947 Thanks Trixie for the information. I deleted the link. That is one thing that Find a Grave allows that I despise. Anyone can add information to a memorial whether it is accurate or not. And there is no way of tracking who added the information for clarification. With over 70,000 memorials to maintain, it is difficult to check each one for correct information. I have to depend on others such as you to inform me of incorrect added information. Again, thanks
