My Samuel STOUT b.abt 1838 came to Giles Co TN from Dekalb Co AL between 1860 and 1868. Sometime within those years his father and niece (I believe) disappeared. The two missing names are Samuel STOUT b. 1800 NC, and Kanico HENRY b.abt1853 TN. The 1870 census has Samuel b.abt 1838 with his wife and children. In the next house are members of the 1860 AL census family; they are: HENRY, Miller age 16 b.TN, HENRY, Lou (possible Lasaida/Lucinda) age 45 b. NC, and STOUT, Mary age 75 b.NC. I have not had access to an 1880 TN census, though I do have a copy of the page my Samuel is on. I would like to find out what happened to Miller HENRY b.abt 1854 TN, Lou (Lasaida/Lucinda) HENRY b. abt 1826 NC (would love any info on her at all), and Mary STOUT b. abt 1795 NC.
