Looking for Daviess Co., IN information on Henry S. Gootee married to Mary Ellen Lents in Daviess County Feb. 4 1851. I believe that he may be the son of Silas Gootee. I found an inventory for Silas, listing Thomas Gootee as administrator, but no children were listed. The Daviess County clerk told me that most of the records burned. If anyone can help me prove Henry's parentage I'll be eternally grateful. I'll be happy to share information.

In the Daviess County 1870 Census, in Van Buren Township there is listed a HENRY GOOTEE
age 42, Indiana page 276. Mary 40, b Indiana and Nicholas age 19 b. Indiana.

Hope this helps.

History of Knox and Daviess Counties, Indiana.
Chicago: The Goodspeed Publishing Co., 1886

Daviess County, Barr Twp., page 832

SYLVESTER SMITH was born in Daviess County, Ind., in
1823, and is the son of James and Martha (Mattingly)
Smith. He received a limited education, and at the age
of twenty began as a farmer on a rented place. Some
three years later he purchased twenty acres of timber
land, on which he built his first log house. He now
owns a good frame dwelling, surrounded by 400 acres of
very fine land. In 1843 he married Martha A. Gootee,
born in 1825, who bore him fifteen children: James,
William, John, Martha, Sarah, William, Barbara,
Charles, Marion, George, Thomas, Lee, Francis,
Catherine and Augusta. The family are members of the
Catholic Church. Mr. Smith deals extensively in stock,
and during the last four years has given almost his
entire attention to stock trading. In 1874 he
purchased a thoroughbred Norman horse at a cost of
$2,750, and in 1883 purchased another which cost
$1,800. He has held the positions of director,
vice-president and superintendent of the Martin County
Fair Association. He is a Democrat, and as a farmer
has been very successful. Mrs. Smith is a daughter of
Silas and Barbara (Walker) Gootee, who were born in
Kentucky. They both died in 1848, within four weeks of
each other.

Debby,

I have Charles Gootee and Barbara Walker as Martha Ann's parents. According to Clara Arnold they both died within a week or so of each other. I would imagine they are buried at St. Mary's in Daviess County. Each time I see something on Sylvester and Martha's children I have to add some more.

I am looking for several women who seem to have been forgotten. Can you help me with any of these ladies?

Hi, Joe:

Thank you for the family info on Martha Ann Gootee and Sylvester Smith. I really appreciate it.

On Martha Mattingly. She is a brick wall. I have nothing on her at all. I haven't found anyone else in our family ring who has either and there is alot of us.

It's like on my GG Grandfather, John B. Scott. He was born in 1811 Kentucky. I can not find anything on him; other that in 1850 Census, he was living with family in Ohio County, Indiana and his marriage to Mary Hannah b. 1814 Pennslyvania. They were married in Dearborn County, Indiana in 1838. I haven't had any luck with Mary Hannah, either. They were to have been living in Daviess County, Indiana by 1860. I have not been able to find them being born in Kentucky or Pennsylvania. I sure would love to find their parents, siblings, and cousins.

I also, have a Mary Elizabeth Scott b. 1762-1765 who married Elisha Perkins. I can not find any info on her either. I have info on Elisha Perkins. I feel Mary Elizabeth Scott is a direct line; but can't make that direct connection.

As for Elvira Fulton; I am afraid, I will not be able to help you with her. I have no info on her or her husband, William Wade.

They are all a big mystery to me. If I can send you anything, please let me know. I will share any family info with you.

Thanks
