1818. They had a son Reuben, Jr. Elizabeth and Andrew were married in
Bourbon Co. Ky. ,and later moved to Missouri. In Monroe Co. (1840 census) they
were listed as having 13 children: Thomas, James, Eliza A.,Lucinda, Lou, Sarah
M.,Delila, Rebecca, Eliza, Preston,Nancy,Mary and Josiah F. We are looking also
