Seeking information about family of William Gans, shown in the 1865 census as living in Coffey, Co., at the age of 41. Particularly interested in his son Hiram, age 20. Seeking his mother, and his (full?) sister, Hannah.

It has been some years since I last asked for information on my family living in Coffee County about 1865 or so. My great grandparents were George Edward Webber and Nancy White Webber. They are described as having deceased in LeRoy and Burlington some time after 1865, but after inquiry of the Coffee County archives, NO detail of those events has been found. A son, also named George Edward Webber is listed in those archives as passing at that time. Any information about any of these events will be deeply appreciated. Thank you - Don Webber

FERGUSON, HESS, GEISEY posted by Jan Budge on Sunday, May 1, 2005

Looking for anything on "Francis Marion Ferguson" and "Jessie Levina Hess." Family records have both dying near Aliceville. Marion died around 1925 of burst appendix. He was associated with the Bank in Aliceville. He left Wife Jessie who was rumored to have married a Geisey. She raised a daughter Pearl and died around 1963. Standard avenues have been unsuccessful. We are wondering if family records could be so detailed and so mistaken. Has anyone heard of these people? Thanks. Jan
