Coosa 1850 Census
Posted by: Terrie Washington Routh (ID *****7712) Date: March 21, 2004 at 23:52:18

This posting is in regards to 1850 Coosa Co. ALA census of adjoining households John C. Halford, Kirkham McEwen, John Law, Samuel Archer, and Thomas Gant. What was their relationship with my 3rd great George Washington and wife #1 Martha Law?

Recently, I found the 1850 Coosa census detailed list on the Internet at:

Of interest to me was the following listings living in next household(s) to Kirkham McEwen

First, it was told to me via email a few years back (unfortunately it was lost) that a
Jincy Halford (1031?) was actually Martha Law, or vise versa. I know the
Halfords in hh 1031 are named the same as George Washington and first wife Martha Law's children, John C. and Catherine.

Next, I'm thinking that this John Law (1032) is
Martha Law's brother. There must be some kind of relationship there between the
Halfords and Laws.

Finally, I find the Samuel Archer family with a Louisa two doors down at the Gant residence. My George's son Francis Marion Lee Washington married Louisa Archer 1857 Coosa Co. AL. What happened to Francis Washington and Louisa Archer??

ANY info on ANY of these families or individuals would greatly be appreciated.
