Re: Lowell Starbird
Posted by: Thomas Kerwin (ID *****3248) Date: February 15, 2012 at 06:47:55
In Reply to: Lowell Starbird by Ada Starbard Yanakakis of 27733

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1930 is the last available census at this time.

1940 census will be released on April 2, 2012. It will take several months to transcribe all the states.

You will not find the information abt Lowell that you seek for these reasons -

Facts you should know about the early census records -
All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated                     
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]
       
1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces +++


NOTE = =
1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Birthplace: Maine

Name: Lowell V STARBIRD
Birth: ABT 1818
Census: 1850 Otisfield, Oxford, Maine - Age 32
Occupation: Carpenter
Event: Fact 1856 Listed in the Maine Register & Business Directory, Page 186
Death: 02 JUN 1858 in Otisfield, Oxford, ( formerly Cumberland County), Maine
Event: Fact BET 1845 AND 1856 Births of 5 children recorded (Frank O Starbird not recorded) 2

Note:
Who were Lowell's parents?

On the 1820 Census for Westbrook, Cumberland County, Maine:
Daniel Starboard - 3 males <10, 1 male between 26 and 45
2 females < 10, 1 female between 26 and 45

The 1830 Census has the following, again for Westbrook:
Daniel Starbird - 1 male between 10 and 15; 1 male between 40 and 50; one male between 50 and 60.
2 females between 10 and 15; 1 female between 15 and 20; 1 female between 20 and 30; and 1 female between 40 and 50.

The 1850 Census for Otisfield, Oxford, Maine has the following:
Family No. 17: Sarah Starbird, Age 72, lodger or boarder, (pauper) in household of Thomas Mayberry.

Family No. 20: Lowell V Starbird, Age 32 and his wife and two children.

Sarah W Starbird, wife of Daniel, died 19 Jan 1851, age about 72 in Otisfield.

Conclusion: very good possibility that Sarah (and David) were Lowell's parents.
