this is what you posted for Manson.....the ages of him and wife do not jive with the ages I have for them in the 1860 census I have...see below....did you copy it correctly, if so prehaps the census I have is mistaken, also my census does not like Merit Jasper either...??
Now if harriett was b 1852.....is she Mary's dau or manson's lst wife dau....Manson md 1851 to Mary 'Polly'
Kinsland. then 1853 md to Welch.....then next child is b 1855.....prob Cook's dau.....dont have a confirmed marriage date for Manson and Cook. Wondering if lst 2 wives died, then he md to Cook.
