Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Given Name: This database uses Tinch S. An IRS tax assement document uses a middle initial of L. [misc-irs-tax-assessment-in-district-7-oct-1863-15]

Birth Date: This database uses 2 June 1830 to 1 June 1831. Using his age (40) on the official 1870 census date of 1 June 1870 gives a birth date range from 2 June 1829 to 1 June 1830. (This conflict goes away if this page's enumeration date of 3 August 1870 was incorrectly used instead of the official census date.) [census-us-1870-ps-in-owen-morgan-23]

SPELLING

Given Name: This database uses Tinch S. In the 1870 U.S. Census, his first name appears to be a typgraphical error, Linch. [census-us-1870-ps-in-owen-morgan-23]

FOLLOWUP

Tinch's middle name may hvave been Surett. [research-a-spear-family-history]

Although the family relationships are not explicitly specified, the position of the names in the 1860 census suggests Tinch's parents were William (55, farmer), born in North Carolina, and Sarah (39, domestic), born in Georgia. Sarah's age (39) implies she was actually a step mother to Tinch (29). The 1880 census also indicates Tinch's mother was born in North Carolina, not Georgia. [census-us-1860-ps-in-owen-morgan-16, census-us-1880-ps-in-owen-248-9]

In addition, his siblings listed in the 1860 census were probably Dizy[sic] Ann (23, domestic), Calvin (17, farm laborer), and Emeline (16, domestic), all born in Indiana. They may also have included, who are listed In the same household: Adam Smith (12) and Lydia M. Carter (9), both born in Indiana. Could Sarah have previously been married to a Smith and living in Indiana? And could she have married William around 9 to 12 years earlier? [census-us-1860-ps-in-owen-morgan-16]

Tinch was probably buried in New Union Cemetery, in Spencer, Owen County, Indiana. However, the gravestone has significant damage and the image included on Find A Grave does not allow clear view of the names, let alone the dates associated with Tinch and his wife Sarah.
