Delamar Wells (19y) is living with his mother, Sally at the
1850 United States Federal Census > North Carolina > Onslow > White Oak.

Amanda Riggs is the daughter of Noah & Ruthy Riggs and their family is listed on the same census page in 1850. Delamar is later listed as being a "cooper". It looks like they may have moved to the Sparta area and he was dead (or not in the household) by 1870, when Amanda Wells is living in the household of a local merchant. In 1880, her daughter Ann, is once again living with her mother, Amanda Wells.
