After my second great-grandfather James F. Pitcock died at Shiloh Tennessee, my Grgr grandmother Martha Ann Nancy Russell Pitcock married a Jacob Bushong in Monroe Co. Kentucky about 1870/71. I have not been able to find his family. He is buried with grandmother Bushong in the Martin Cemetery near Dora, Ozark Co. Missouri. Any help would be greatly appreciated,
I've got a likely connection for Jacob. This from his individual notes at RootsWeb..
Jacob's connection to John Andrew Bushong and Ferby W.White is an educated guess, based on the following.
His date of birth fits with siblings.
He's named Jacob as is an uncle
He's middle named, Hamilton, after his uncle Thomas Hamilton and aunt Margaret Peggy Bushong Hamilton.
He married a Bryant, probably a sister to George W Bushong's wife, Nancy T Bryant.
He lived in the same county as his father and was about 13 households away from George Bushong and Nancy Bryant in the 1850 Census
Named a child Newton for middle name, as did at least 2 other siblings.
with this I'm connecting Jacob to John and Ferby Bushong and still looking for more proof.
