Norman Families Living in Missouri in 1860

with 6 comments


In my search for my Great-Grandfather Frank Norman, I became interested in where Norman families were living in Missouri in 1860. Frank was born around 1855, so it is likely his family was still in Missouri for the 1860 Census. Locating all the Normans in Missouri also helped me be certain I have not missed any possible Frank Normans in my search.

To do this, I searched the 1860 US Census for the name Norman and located each family on an 1856 map of Missouri. Each black dot represents one or more households living at that location in 1860. I have included the table of households at the end of this post, in case this information would help other Norman families in their genealogy searches. I have double-checked the information but please be aware, there may be households missing or incorrect. My next genealogy project is to map the Norman families in Missouri in 1870.

Norman Families Missouri 1860

~

In 1860, there were 92 households in Missouri with people having the surname Norman. Some of these were families, some with more than one generation in the household, some with as many as eight children. Some were young men or women living or working as servants or laborers with other families. Some were young children, living with foster families.

~

Four of Norman families had sons named Francis. As I have explained in earlier posts, I have eliminated three of these as possible candidates for my Great-Grandfather.  I think my ancestor  was Francis M. Norman, son of Moses and Betsy Norman, living in Hooker, Laclede County.

  1. I love things like this! Only one person over 70… the names Handkerson, Bennetta, Permelia, Chlany, Araminta… it makes me want to know their stories!

    • Hi. I know what you mean. I have looked a lot at some families, mostly to find my great-grandfather but sometimes just to see what happened to them. I agree the names were curious. Also, sometimes you see that parents have died and a family of kids has been split up among several homes. Your observation of only one over 70 is interesting!

  2. Fascinating work, Jane. You are, in the best sense, multi-talented.

    • I love starting something new, which explains why I always have lots on the go. Learning about new things is great too. Wish I could travel back in time and visit some of these Normans.

  3. The Norman Conquest. I thought that took place elsewhere. I must be wrong. 😉
