Sepia Saturday 118 : Going Out Meet The Millsap Family

Tonight's Sepia Saturday is labeled Going Out. Ourselves or family members all dressed up to go out. You can read other Sepia Saturdays here.

This week I am going to be working on my Millsap / Millsaps family. This picture is of George Everett Millsap and family. George is the brother of my great grandmother Rachel Millsap Zion who married Jonathan Adam Zion.
Pictured with George is his wife Amanda SAMS and children Everett Ray, Anna E, Hazel, Jasie, Jessie, and William. Son Walter passed away before this picture was taken.
The Millsaps are all dressed up in their best for this family picture. The picture was taken about 1914.
I believe they were living in Missouri.
 More research needs to be done on this family to confirm that I have the correct names of some of the children. George last years were in Idaho. I did not know I had family that had gone to Idaho so this will be a new state to do some research in.
The parents of George and my great grandmother Rachel were Flavious Armenious and Anna Woodmansee Millsap. Flavious and Anna had a total of ten children.

Thanks for stopping by for Sepia Saturday Grace

How To Lose A Relative With Out Really Trying Mistakes In Census Recordings

Today while sitting at McDonald’s sipping on my soda pop I am wandering Ancestry searching for sources on my McCormick Zion family. I especially want to see what and where his children are going. The 1850 census is missing my McCormick Zion but there is a Dion McCormick. Sure enough after clicking on the census there are my McCormick Zion and his family recorded. Trouble is the person who transcribed the census recorded him as Dion McCormick 55 with wife Elizabeth 52, son John 19 and son Andrew McCormick age 17. In truth this is really McCormick Zion and all the family members with the last name Zion not McCormick. I am hoping by this find I will see what happened to Andrew Zion.  Great family stories can come by searching for siblings of our ancestors. John aka Jonathan is my ancestor.  I may learn more if I can learn more about Andrew.
