Making Sense of the Census (Fording the Langs, at Present)

Thomas R. Lankford (b. 1797, TN, m. Loise, b. 1807, TN), of P.O. Congersvillle, Henry County, Tennessee

1860 CENSUS–“THOMAS R.” LANKFORD IS AGE SIXTY-THREE, A COOPER, BORN IN VIRGINIA, LIVING WITH WIFE LOISE, FIFTY-THREE, AND THREE CHILDREN, IN P.O. CONYERSVILLE, HENRY COUNTY, TENNESSEE. HeritageQuest on-line image, accessed 4 Apr 2006, transcription by shb:

1664/1694 Eliza Cherry 43F Farmer 3450 7240 Tennessee [A Parker? (see below)]
John B. 20M Farmer Tennessee
Calvin 17M Farmer Tennessee
Aneliza 14F Tennessee
Sallie 9F Tennessee [named after Sallie Parker, below?–I would guess Eliza Cherry is dau. of James and Sallie Parker–shb.]
Albert G. 6M Tennessee

[I am interested that this family is on the same census page as Thomas R. Lankford, below, as a Benjamin D. Lankford, b. 1795, of Warren County, Kentucky, m. Mary Ann Eliza Cherry on 9 Dec 1843, in Warren County, Kentucky–could there be a connection?–shb.]

1665/1695 James Parker 72M Farmer 1600 1200 Virginia
Sallie 66F North Carolina
Elizabeth Gibbs 23F Tennessee [Gibbs family continues, but apparently with a different, next address–Elizabeth just visiting the Parkers?–shb]

[Next come Gibbs, Parker, and Bowman families.] Then:

1168/1699 Thomas R. Lankford 63M Cooper 250 500 Virginia
Loise 53F Virginia
Martha 23F Tennessee
Harriet 20F Tennessee
Thomas 18M Farmer Tennessee
William 14M Tennessee

1669/1700 James B. Valentine and family. –shb 4 Apr 2006
