The 1880 census below shows a George S Rhame married to an LF. This is scant evidence to go on, but several items on this census point to LF being Lenora. First, she and her parents have the correct birthplace. Second, Kershaw Co is the county in which her father was born (James Banks). Third, her mother’s maiden name is Boykin, and LF has a child named Boykin. Fourth, LF also has a child named Elizabeth, which is Lenora’s older sister. Although this is a common name, such coincidence does lend some weight. Fifth, LF’s age is correct to the year. So while I’ll hold it loosely, it appears to me that this is our Lenora.
Update (27 Aug 2011): I just found a death certificate for the son of George Sinclair Rhame and Lenora Bradley, who was born and died in Camden, Kershaw Co, SC. This evidence confirms in my mind that our Lenora Bradley, daughter of James Banks, has been found. With this information I’m going to pursue this line and see how much I can find.
- 1850 Federal Census – Sumter Co, SC (James Banks Household – daughter)
- 1860 Federal Census – Sumter, SC (GS Rhame household – wife)
- 1880 Federal Census – Kershaw Co, SC (Geo S Rhame Household – wife)
- Death Cert for John Edward Rhame – This confirms the identity of the LF on the 1880 census as our Lenora Bradley
