I am not related to your family, but looked to see what I could find about your family.

Regarding Zenith, who was born in NC, possibly her father was Jacob Colville, born circa 1775 and lived in Rutherford Co., NC. He died there about 1816. HE married "Mary" (maiden name ??) circa 1818 (where ?) and theey had about 5 children, born in Rutherford Co. I feel one of their children was your Azenith.

Azenith was born 1803 , probably in Rutherford Co. and appeared to have died during the period 1860-70 in Clay Co., Ill. Circa 1818 she married John G. Salter, possibly in Edgefield Co., SC John Salter apparently was born 1793 in Edgefield Co. and died 11|26/1859 in Clay Co. While living in SC they had son James B. Salter (b5/12/1820)'.

Circa 1825 the family moved to Lawrence Co., Ind. and had the following children there: William (b. 11/26/1828) and a daughter (b. circa 11826).

On the 1850 census they lived in Washington Co., Ind. They had the following children, probably some born in Lawrence Co. and some born in Washington Co. The children were : Mary (b. 1837), Nancy (1840), John T. (1846), and James H. (1851). Yes, they had 2 James . On that censu, John salter was 57 and Azenith was 47.

Circa 1853 the family moved to Clay Co., Ill., where sons Thomas J. (1855) and John D. (1859) were born. Again, father John salter died 11/16/1859> in Clay Co.

The last record of Azenith was the 1860 census. I assume she died in the 1860's.

Their oldest son, James B. salter (b. 1820), married Beulah Allgood circa 1849 (she was born 1831) and they had the following children: Thomas (b. 1851), William (1856), Sarilla (a girl- 1861), Levi (1864), Francis ( a boy , 1865), and Harry (1867). Father James Salter (1820) died during the period 1871-1880 in Davies Co., Ind., where his family lived on the 1870 and 1880 census"

His family had moved to Davies Co., during the period 1856-61 from Ill. (Clay Co. ??)
Beulah died 1/31/1894 in Clay Co.

I know this writeup will be very confusing to you, but I hope you learn something from it. Bob Eddings.
