Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Jacob FORTNER

Residences & events:

7/27/1850 Green Twp, Ross Co, OH. The census taker listed Jacob at 41, a laborer without property. Mary was 44 and in the family were John, 23, laboreer, Catherine C, 18, and Mary A, 14. Also counted there was George W Conner, 58, no occupation. Down the road was Mary's brother Isaac.

6/22/1860 Same place, PO Chillicothe. At census time Jacob, 50, and Mary, 54, lived alone. He was a farmer but had only personal property which was worth 1650. The family next door was daughter Mary and William Woodring.

6/17/1870 Still there. PO Kingston. By the next census, daughter Catherine's family had moved in with them. Jacob, 62, was still farming with property worth $1800/1000, Mary was 65. Son-in-law Jacob Hyne, 46, was also a farmer, his property totaled $2200/900. Catherine was 38, with 2 children, Alice, 18, and John, 8. It seems the Woodrings had moved west.

6/7/1880 Same place. Jacob, 71, was recorded as a farmer but Mary M, 74, was a retired farmer (wrong row noted probably). They still had the Hyne family with them, Jacob was then 55 and a farmer, Catherine E was 47, and John A was 18.
