It would appear that perhaps during the Civil War, there was some sort of epidemic. Information is that Eglatine died 1 Jun 1864. There are 4 children that were listed in 1860 that do not appear again. Phillip's wife and two children are not there in 1870. The mother, Aurora Proctor Hoy also died in the intervening years. There is no indication what happened to her considerable property and the slaves have been freed greatly reducing the families personal property value. I would think the two females working in the household were likely former slaves of the family.

William E. HOY and Eglantine S. E. ABLE were married on 21 August 1849 in Madison County, Mississippi.573 Eglantine S. E. ABLE, daughter of James ABLE and Anne A. MADISON, was born on 18 December 1832.573 She died on 1 June 1864 at the age of 31.573

William E. HOY and Eglantine S. E. ABLE had the following children:



Anne Aurora HOY was born on 24 July 1850.574 She died on 15 September 1851 at the age of 1.574



S. Emma HOY967 was born on 2 February 1852.574,966,967 She died on 11 August 1872 at the age of 20.574

In 1870, the only child that seems to be living is an 18-year-old listed as "Amelia". The age is appropriate for "S. E." listed in 1870 - perhaps the middle name was Amelia/Emelia. Database online gives her name as "Emma".
