I am searching for Henry Ammons and his heirs who moved to Humphrey
County during the late 1830's. He formally lived in Hickman County
and was married first to Christiana Totty and later to his widowed
sister in law, Naomi Whitson Totty (married to Christiana's brother
initially). Christiana died ca. 1835, Henry died ca 1838. Woulld
like to get information on his family (children0. Evidence points
toward my great great grandfather, John Andrew Ammons being a son of
this marriage, born ca 1820. The 1830 census indicates a total of
four children at that time. Please help if you can. I will be
delighted to share with you anything I have on the Ammons Family and
have some information on the Totty Family (although most of this
Totty info I have is already well documented).
