In Reply to: ANDREW JACKSON SINOR by Barbara Crane Shearman of 182


I have Andrew Jackson dying during the Civil era (circa 1863), and the story that has been passed to me by several researchers is that he died in his front yard, killed by bushwackers. A Nelson Sinor researcher has poll tax records (Note to file: Fact 1: 1859, poll tax/Tenn, Fact 2: 1860, poll tax, Fact 3: 1866, poll tax/Tenn)of an Andrew Jackson Sinor still in Bradley Co. Tennessee during this time and another has a census record of him being in Marion Co., Arkansas at the point of the 1860 census for that county (Note to file: 1860 SINOR A. J., Marion County Arkansas, Page 656, Barren Creek Township Federal Population Schedule AR 1860 Federal Census Index AR126237347). Sounds to me like there are possibly two different Sinors, with the same given name. None the less, the common story is that he was killed in his front yard, now which county and state is another mystery.

Sorry that I couldn't help more,
