This is an update to the post Doyle Family Genealogy I, published on April 7, 2013. When I figure out how to link to the first post, I will do so here.
This is information I was able to gather from visiting the Crawfordsville, Scott County, Indiana area during the summer of 2013.
What I’m looking for is more information on Farmer Doyle, senior. I located an obituary for a Farmer Doyle, dated March 17, 1883, in the Saturday Evening Journal, but this was more than likely Farmer’s son, Farmer.
I am much more of the opinion that Farmer Doyle, Sr. died in Kentucky, probably still in Shelby County. So far I have not found evidence for this, but I haven’t found evidence against it, either.
The Doyle family line is proving to be a tough nut to crack, but I’ll keep looking…eventually the right clue will turn up.

My brick wall of the month for June is Nancy Campbell.
We know very little about Nancy. We know from census information that she was born in or near Elberton, Elbert County, Georgia, about 1794.
We know she married Basil Brawner about 1810, still living in Elbert County, but by 1820 the family had moved to Blount County, Tennessee.
In 1870, Nancy was living in Kentucky, and she evidently died there, in 1876.
But who were her parents? Where did they come from? How long had this branch of the family been in America?
I’m having a particularly difficult time with researching Nancy because her name is so common. I have poked around on ancestry.com, but haven’t found anything.
If you have any suggestions or thoughts of where I might look next, please pass them along. Thanks!
