Today I sourced the data for the Joel Thornburgh Hill family found in the 1900 census of Hamilton Co., and the 1910 census of Boone Co., IN. Joel married my maternal 3rd-great grandaunt Sarah Beals.
Joel was a farmer by occupation, and lived in Washington Twp. in Hamilton Co. and Marion Twp. in Boone Co. The family moved a bit, as there children were listed as being born in Indiana, Kansas and Nebraska. Sarah was listed as the mother of 7 children, with only 4 living by the 1900 census. In the 1910 census, only son Ludovic was living with them.
