  • Notes 
    • Have a problem with daughters of Eppy Rhodes. 1850 Federal Census lists two daughters born between 1840 and 1850; Susan E. age 6, and Nancy O. age 3. 1860 Federal Census lists three daughters born between 1840 and 1850; Frances age 16, Ursula age 14, and Nancy age 12. Susan E. could possibly be Susan F. She is listed as age 6 in 1850 and Frances is listed as age 16 in 1860. They could be the same person. Nancy O. is listed as age 3 in 1850 and age 12 in 1860. Allowing for the differences in the effective dates of different census records, Nancy seems to be correctly accounted for in both census years. Where did Ursula come from? She is not on the 1850 census but suddenly appears in 1860 age 14. Is it possible she is not a daughter of Eppy but perhaps a niece or other relative who is living in the household in 1860?

      Definitely need more research on these three girls.
