Jackson/Lawrence County, Indiana Genealogy

The goal of this blog is to document my research into the genealogy of southern Indiana, particularly that of Jackson and Lawrence Counties. As I gather original information, I will include it here with images. I would greatly appreciate any images that others may care to share. I will post them here with a grateful acknowledgement. I also love Sudoku puzzles and publish original ones from time to time. The address for the sudoku blog is http://uniqueandfunsudokupuzzles.blogspot.com/

Corbin Fish and Nancy Owens Fish

Here is what I have put together for the family of Corbin Fish. I have asked permission from Ancestry.com to post the census images but have not received it yet. If they approve, I will update this post with the census images. If anyone has copies of original documents or photos, I would love to have them. Corbin FISH (Sources 1,2) was born 9 Dec 1805 (Sources 3-6) in Lincoln County, North Carolina (Sources 3-6). He died 1 Apr 1885 in Owen Township, Jackson County, Indiana (Source 2) and was buried in Liberty Cemetery, Owen Township, Jackson County, Indiana (Source 2). He moved to Orange County, Indiana, about 1815 with his two brothers and their families (Source 1). They came from Lincoln County, North Carolina. Probably in the spring of 1816, William and Isaac moved to the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood of Lawrence County, while Corbin settled in Jackson County. He and his family are shown in the censuses from 1830-1880, living in Owen Township, Jackson County, Indiana (Sources 3-6, 9, 10). He was listed as a farmer in each of the censues (Sources 3-6, 9, 10). At the time of his death he had a total of 125 grandchildren and great grandchildren. Corbin married (Sources 1, 2, 6-8) Nancy OWENS daughter (Source 2) of John and Polly OWENS, on 24 Aug 1826 in Lawrence County, Indiana. Nancy was born 13 May 1805 in Kentucky (Sources 2, 6). She died 20 Nov 1896 in Jackson County, Indiana (Source 2) and was buried in Liberty Cemetery, Owen Township, Jackson County, Indiana (Source 2).
