Union Co.,KY query: This is an update on a previous query concerning the ancestors of Eliza Ann HALL GALLUP, believed to come from Grove, Union Co. KY. There may be connections to Cairo, IL and Union Co. IL. The female parent of Eliza Ann was probably named Mary BARRINGER per the back of a carte d'visite. Her father can only be determined to have been a Mr. Hall (thus far). Eliza was age 17 in 1837 when she married Orrin GALLUP in Spencer, IN with the permission of an unnamed guardian so both her parents were likely dead at that point. Have looked for years on this one and am reduced to begging. Please help.

It seems that the time fram would be very early 1900. Also would like to contact anyone with information on Nancy (HENSHAW)STONE who married Isaac HOOPER in 1852. Isaac died in in 1859 and Nancy died in 1909. Can you help in these matters.
