Minor Mothershead & Celia Hall

This is just a version of a Family Group Sheet. If you're a long-lost cousin, old family friend, or would like to share information, photos, or just swap tall tales, we'd love to hear from you! Please be sure to reference genealogy in your subject line. I automatically delete email from screen names I don't know without ever opening it since I get horrendous amounts of junk mail!

I don't know much about Minor and even less about his wife, Celia [Hall]. We do know that Minor and Celia met and married in Kentucky. Around 1827 they moved to Jefferson County, Missouri with their three young sons. Minor's father, William was already there with the rest of his family. Sometime after 1832 Minor and Celia moved their family back to Mt. Washington, Bullitt County, Kentucky and lived the rest of their lives there. The information below is what's known from the census records.

Please bear in mind, that all information, though I have verified as much as possible with my own research, is always susceptible to errors. I will cite sources for my information where possible.
