I am trying to figure out who this James Blackford is that was listed as living with Thomas McConkey (McKonkey)on the 1850 census of Clinton Township Wayne Co.,OH. He possibly was with them as early as 1840 as well. I pasted the info below from my files.

Information from 1840 Census of Clinton Twp., Wayne Co., OH.
The ages and gender of the persons listed as living with Thomas McConkey at the time:
1 Male 5-10 (Unknown)(Thomas Shrieve son of Elizabeth listed in 1850?)
2 Male's 10-15 (Unknown,(James Blackford listed in 1850?) ,Reason
1 Male 50-60 (Thomas-Head of Household)

1 female 10-15 (Rachel)
1 female 15-20 (Mary Ann)
1 Female 20-30 (Mahalah)
1 Female 50-60 (Elizabeth wife of Thomas)

Note: Could the unknown Male be a Grand Children?

Naomi was married at age 15-20 during this census.
Hannah (25-30) and Orpha(20-35) no longer show on the Census.

Information from 1850 Census of Clinton Township of Wayne County, Ohio.
He was living with his wife Elizabeth and 3 of their daughters.
He was 66 years old and a farmer with a value of real estate of $28,000
He was born in Pennsylvannia.
Also living with them in 1850 was Thomas Shreive (aged 16 farmer, born in Ohio, who attended school within the last year){son of daughter Elizabeth and Samuel Shreve but listed with no title} , Elizabeth Bryse (aged 18, born in Ohio, who attended school within the last year, granddaughter but listed with no title), Hannah Bryse (aged 40, born in Pennsylvannia, and could not read or write) {Thomas' Daughter but listed without title}, Martha J, Bryse (aged 12, born in Ohio, who attended school within the last year, granddaughter but listed with no title), Sarah E.

The name was spelled McKonkey in the census.
