It’s been like Christmas here for several days. I did find a descendant of Justus and Mary Wells Hickok.
I have been pursuing for several years and I now have a third descendant of the Eldred-Austin Cousins (children of Augustus and Phebe Maria Eldred Austin) who wrote such lively letters in the 1860s.
Here are the Eldred-Austin Cousins whose descendants I have been searching for:
Alonzo Eugene and Isabelle Camp Austin (Descendants would be through Joseph G. and Olinda Austin Ayers.)
Mortimer Bruce and Mary Millspaugh Austin (Found!)
Henry and Net Austin Clinton (Their daughter married Francis Deal.)
Thomas J. and Addie E. Austin Thompson (Found!)
Edward D. Austin (Unknown if he married.)
Randolph and Tina Austin Laing (Unknown if they had children.)
Archibald and Rand Austin Paton (Found!)
James and Ida Belle Austin Brown (Unknown if they had children.)
