Looking for information about Joseph & Orphila Pope, enumerated in the 1850 & 1860 Federal Censuses in Berrien County, Michigan.

Joseph was born @ 1780 in Massachusetts. Orphila's headstone is more complete -- she was born 23 November 1811, also in Massachusetts.

Known children are sons Chauncey (1817) and Thomas (1820) both born in New York per all available census enumerations. A possible son is John P., born in Lyons, Wayne County, New York.

I do realize that Orphila is a second wife for Joseph, due to Chauncey & Thomas' birth dates!

Orphila/Ophelia's family probably lived near the Popes in New York.

Thank you!
