Joyce, I know you are probably much too busy to really
be interested in this but I wanted you to know how much proof I was able
to find on your site for the ancestors of Charles Inscho. The attachment
has 7 links to your site not counting the census records. (I have my own
stash of Inscho census records.) Using all of these records I believe I
have airtight proof of that lineage.
I think where people are mislead on this line is because the 1870 census is so wrong. Both Solomon and Sophia have died and the household is one of several siblings and Cordelia is the only one with the right age. In fact Miller is listed only 1 year older than in 1860 and George is actually younger. It is obvious that the person that gave the census taker that information didn't have a clue as to their real ages.
Then in the 1880 census the name became Millard instead of Miller and the person that transcribed it for your site read it as Willard. So you have to look at a multitude of records to put together the family but it can be done.
Now is this a success story or not!
