There are several persons who are looking at William and Arty Prince. I believe she is Arty Mullins. Filed in Dec 1835 in Lawrence County, Ky was a divorce petition. Rachel Prince was seeking a divorce from her husband William Prince. She names Arty Mullins as the 'other woman' and says that William has a couple of children with Arty. I sent for a copy of the divorce petition from the Archives in Frankfort, Ky. In the petition Rachel states that they were married about 1810 in Russell County, Va. They later came to Lawrence County, Ky with 8 children. Only 2 children (James and John) were named. I think it was because they would be old enough to hold the land deeds that Rachel was trying to get. I believe William and Rachel Prince to be the parents of my Thomas Prince. Thomas was born about 1823/4 in Russell or Lee County, Va. He married Mary Jacobs in 1846 in Carter County, Ky. They are in the 1850 and 1860 census of Lawrence Co, Ky. Rachel is living as head of household in the 1850 census. In the 1860 census, she is living with John and Lavina (Griffith) Prince. William is present in the 1830 census but not in the later years.
I don't have the census you wanted but I thought to give you this information.
