VANHORN posted by O E VanHorn on Wednesday, June 16, 1999

Would anyone have an idea where Moses V VANHORN and wife Sophia were living in 1900? They are not included in Wes Cochran's Roane County census .... Moses and Sophia were married in 1896 in Roane .... Their oldest daughter was born in 1897 in Schilling and the oldest son, Carl C, was born in 1903 in Spencer .... All other children were born in Roane .... could the census have just missed them?

MAZE, PRICE posted by Deborah on Monday, June 28, 1999

Searching for information on Thomas S PRICE, born Feb 1859 .... The Calhoun County census for 1860 shows him with the Thomas S MAZE family but indicates he is from Roane. The 1870 census shows a Mary Ellen PRICE with the same family, she is 7 years older than Thomas, so I assume she may be his sister .... The only other info I have on this family is from his marriage to Hannah MAZE on 08 Apr 1888, which indicated his father was William PRICE, no mention of his mother .... Medical
