Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Ancestral Homes 150 Years Ago

From Randy over at Genea-Musings: 


Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 
time for some more Genealogy Fun!!
 
 
 Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

1)  Determine where your ancestral families were on 1 June 1863 - 150 years ago.

2)  List them, their family members, their birth years, and their residence location (as close as possible).  Do you have a photograph of their residence from about that time, and does the residence still exist?

3)  Tell us all about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a Facebook Status or Google+ Stream post.

Here's mine:
 
*  My 2nd great-grandparents, George Washington Tapley (1814-aft.1880) and Elizabeth MNU Tapley (1824-aft. 1880) were living in Johnson County, Georgia.  I do not have a photograph of their home; it has long since been destroyed.  The household included my great-grandfather, James (Jim) Madison Tapley (1847-1912).  

*  My 2nd great-grandmother, Elizabeth Scoggins Page (1802-unknown), was living in Johnson County, Georgia.  Her husband, Solomon Page (1800-1860), had already passed.
 
*  My great-grandmother, Elizabeth Rebecca (Becky) Page (1844-1924) was also living in Johnson County, Georgia, probably with her mother.  I do not have a photograph of their residence, but my cousin has pointed out the location to me.

*  My 2nd great-grandparents, James William Drake (1829-1908) and Mary Ann R. Brantley Drake (1837-1891) were living near Adrian in Emanuel County, Georgia.  In 1863, James was serving in the Civil War in G Company of the 32nd Infantry from Georgia.  Also in their household was my great-grandfather, William John Drake (1857-1927).  

*  My 3rd great-grandparents, Francis Bryant Drake (1806-1875) and Selina King Drake (1812-1899) were living near Adrian in Emanuel or Johnson County, Georgia (Adrian sits half in each county).  I have no photographs of any of the ancestrial homes near Adrian.

*  My 3rd great-grandparents, James K. Harrell (1814-1895) and Nancy Beasley Harrell (1814-1898) were either still living in Darlington County, South Carolina or had already located to Emanuel County, Georgia.  In 1863, I believe my 2nd great-grandfather, William Robert Harrell (1838-1908), was still residing with his parents as he didn't marry until 1865.  

*  My 4th great-grandparents, Archibald Odom III (1798-1873) and Isabella Elizabeth Anderson Odom (1796-1873), were living in Emanuel County, Georgia.

*  My 3rd great-grandparents, Elijah Samuel Odom (1816-1870) and Rutha Goff Odom (1812-1895) were living in Emanuel County, Georgia.   

*  My 2nd great-grandmother, Catherine M Odom (1841-1875) had recently been widowed and could have still been living in Johnson County or with her parents in Emanuel County, Georgia.

*  My 2nd great-grandfather, George W. Schwalls Sr (1837-1908) was living in Johnson County, Georgia.  In 1863, he was serving in the Civil War in Company E of the 48th Infantry from Georgia. 
  
*  My 3rd great-grandparents, Zachariah W. Claxton (1806-unknown) and Lincelia Bush Claxton (dates unknown), were living in Edgefield County, South Carolina.
 
*  My 2nd great-grandmother, Lincelia E. Claxton (1839-1882) was recently widowed and living in Edgefield County, South Carolina.  

*  My 4th great-grandmother, Elizabeth Hubbard Ranney (1790-1868) was most likely living in Summit County, Ohio. 
 
*  My 3rd great-grandfather, Luther Boardman Ranney (1809-1890) was also most likely living in Summit County, Ohio.  My 3rd great-grandmother, Sarah Maria Carter Ranney (18121846) had passed away and Luther was remarried to Caroline Clapp Ranney (1821-1895).  
 
*  My 2nd great-grandfather, Comfort Ranney (1838-1920) was living in Boston, Summit County, Ohio and was serving in Company D, 61st Infantry Regiment during the Civil War.
 
*  My 4th great-grandparents, James Warren Hesser (1819-1906) and Sophia Humphrey Hesser (dates unknown), were living in Summit County, Ohio.

*  My 3rd great-grandparents, Jonathan Hesser (1791-1876) and Casena Viers Hesser (1800-unknown) were probably living in Ohio, too, though I have not confirmed that fact.  They were in Ohio by 1870.  
 
*   My 2nd great-grandmother, Mary Margaret Hesser (1842-1920) was also living in Summit County, Ohio,  mostly likely with her parents. I have no photographs of any of the ancestrial homes in Ohio. 

*  My 3rd great-grandparents, Samuel Carter (abt. 1815-unknown) and Polly Marie Ozmun Carter (1817-unknown)  were probably living in Summit County, Ohio.  Their son, my 2nd great-grandfather, Charles K. Carter (1843-1916) may or may not have been living with them.  

*  My 3rd great-grandparents, Richard Schoonover (dates unknown) and Sara Ozmun Schoonover (1800-1870), along with their daughter, my 2nd great-grandmother, Sarah Melissa Schoonover (1840-1918) were living in parts unknown in 1863.  They were probably in Ohio, but I do not know if Charles and Sarah were married by then or any other details. 

I believe that is all of my ancestors alive in 1863 - 3 great-grandparents, 12 second great-grandparents, 15 third great-grandparents, and 5 fourth great-grandparents.  The lived in Georgia, Ohio, and South Carolina.  

I have no pictures of homes where they were living in 1863.  In most cases, I do not even know a location.  I also see where there are huge holes in my research as to the 1860 census and where many of my ancestors were living at that time.  MUST GET BUSY researching.
