I've been driving myself crazy trying to figure out the relationship the Wickliffe/Bodine family has to the Carbon(Carbin) family & I've yet to come up with anything. So I thought that the best thing for me to do is to blog about it.
Earlier this year, I posted a Monday mystery about the Wickliffe-Carbon/Carbin family connection,
Since then, I haven't made much progress.
Here is a few examples:
This is a cropped download of the 1880 United States Federal Census for
|South Carrollton, Muhlenberg, Kentucky|
Charles Bodine is a name I've seen a few times, but this record states that his father was Joseph Bodine.
Is this the same Joseph Bodine-my 3 times great grandfather?This record is also from 1880 & the reason I can't shake the feeling that there must be some relation.
Just being neighbors, doesn't make them family, but the fact that Carbons live so close to my 3 times great grandmother is not just by chance.
This is the only record I can find that gives me hope I will one day find the answer.
Blanche, the 9 year old in this record, married a Wickliffe. Charles Wickliffe-son of my 3 times great grandfather, Alney Wickliffe.
I have no other records that connect our families.
Help me out Wickliffe family.
How are we related to the Carbons/Carbins?
