  • I first found information on Ozias in the 1930 census in PrairieTownship, Arkansas County, Arkansas, when his wife was a widow livingnext door to their son Travis.  From Travis' information, I learnedthat Ozias was born in Kentucky.

    I then found Ozias and his wife in Indiana in 1910.  I learned in theprocess that her full name was not Flora, as reported in 1930, butFlorinda.  I found them a few houses away from their single sonTravis, age 27, living as a single on his own farm.

    This 1910 census also reported that Ozias was born in Kentucky, aswell as both his parents. With this information I searched for Oziasin Kentucky.

    I found Ozias with his parents in Wayne County, Kentucky, in 1860,when he was 4 years old.  There were also two sisters, Mary Jane 5 andEliza J 1, and a brother Joe Davis 3.  His parents here are listed asA J and Margaret Dancy.  They are living near Monticello, which istheir post office.

    Margaret Dancy 23 F Housewife born Kentucky
    Ozias Dancy 4 M born Kentucky [b abt 1856]

    I then was able to find Ozias' parents in the Kentucky marriageregister, where I found them as Andrew J Dancy and Margaret Brown.

    I found them in the Warrick County, Indiana census in 1870 and 1910.I have not found their son Ozias in 1870, 1880 or 1900.  In 1910 heand his wife are still in Skelton Township of Warrick County, Indiana. They have no children, but their single son Travis is renting a farma few houses away from them.

    Because this census gives the numbers of years in this marriage, wecan say that Ozias and Florinda married in about 1882.  Travis was 27in 1910, and that would mean he was born about 1883.  The actual birthdate is 27 June 1882.  Ozias and Florinda married in November 1881.

    I later found Travis and his parents in 1920 in Prairie Township.This gave me some timeline for their move to Arkansas.  They were inIndiana in the 1910 census but in Prairie for the February 1920 censusenumeration.  It turns out that they were married in Indiana in 1910and moved to Arkansas County, Arkansas, where the newspaper item abouttheir move said Travis and Lillie made their residence in to DeWitt.But they actually moved to a rural areea near St Charles, on the WhiteRiver, east of DeWitt, the southern county seat.

    In the 1920 census Ozias' name was spelled differently, as Ozrons.
