Okay you Voorhies researchers out there... another myetery at hand.
Samuel Niles Voorhies was born July 29, 1830 in NY. He married Deborah Ann Ireland supposedly in Jones County c.1856 but do not see a record for one? He is living next to his future in-laws on the 1856 census and married and living in same Jackson township in 1860 with children. Where is the marriage record?
Then between 1880 and 1885 he disappears and never shows back up in the census prior to his wife's death yet he is shown with a shared stone in Olin and a death date for him of 1916.
Where did he disappear to and when did he come back, or did he for someone to know he died 1916?
Then I see they had a child born 1874 in California. When did they go out there only to return to Jones Co. for another birth in 1880? The CA birth is consistant between 1885-1920 census records for their son George O. Voorhies.
Hope someone can answer these mysteries?
