52 Ancestors 52 Weeks - Week 41

George David Bohall

George Bohall was born in Meade County, Kentucky on April 17, 1819, to Joseph and Sarah Milstead Bohall. He was the oldest of 8 children.

On September 11, 1841, George Married Catherine Draper in Jackson County, Indiana. Together they raised 4 children: Elizabeth Ellen, my Great-great-grandmother, Joseph, John Dudley and James Seth.

I found George in the 1850 Census in Grassy Fork Township, Jackson County, Indiana. In this entry Bohall is spelled Bohol. He is 36, his wife Catherine is 33, the children in the home are Joseph, 7, Elizabeth E., 5, John, 3, and James is one years old. The next two houses are listed as his brother William and his family and next to him, their parents Joseph and Sarah. This census does not list occupation.

In the 1860 census, again in Grassy Fork Township, Jackson County, Indiana, George is 45. He is listed as a carpenter. Catherine is 41, and the children in the household are: Elizabeth, 16, John, 14 and James is 12.

In the 1870 Census, George is 52 and listed as a farmer.  They are still at the same place, Grassy Fork Township, Jackson County, Indiana. He and Catherine are alone. She is 51 years old.

The Bohalls were known for their baskets. This is what George did, at least part of the time.
