Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Hiram GUY


1860 Where was Hiram and the family that year at census time? On the move?

8/6/1870 Paradise Twp, Coles Co, IL. He was a farmer at census time but no property was listed so perhaps they had just returned from MO with his father's family. He was 36 years old, born in TN, Dulcena was 34, and their children were: James, 13, Mary, 7, and Jeremiah, 1. Next door neighbors were the families of Thomas and Gore.

1873 Sumper Twp, Majority Point, Cumberland Co, IL. According to the newspaper Hiram and his father were Legal Voters there.

6/2/1880 W of IL Central RR, Mattoon, Coles Co, IL. The census that year said he was a laborer born in PA as were both parents. He was 46, Dulcena was 44, and had the 6 children: James M, 23; May I, 16; Jeremiah, 11; Nancy Ellen, 9; Albert F, 5; and Nellie D, 1.

Hiram's birthplace depends on which census is being read, one says Tennessee, another says Pennsylvania.

He died of old age and was a widower at the time.
