In Reply to: Stephen Jones Columbia township 1840 census lookup by Debra Merriweather of 694

Hi Debra:

The following information is credited to an online subscription to the Census records at Ancestry.com.

The 1840 Census is basically heads of family with numerical indications of the the number of other individuals within the same household separated by age group.

The closest notation to Stephen is an "SJ Jones" in LaGrange, Lorain County, Ohio in 1840:

Age of Males:

<5
5-10 = 1
10-15 = 1
15-20 = 2
20-30 = 1
30-40
40-50 = 1

Age of Females:

<5
5-10
10-15 = 1
15-20
20-30
30-40
40-50 = 1


The 1850 Census shows all names within the household. There I find (Ohio, Lorain County, Columbia Twp.):

Frederick, age 22, Laborer, value of RE $700, b. NY
Calvin, age 25, Laborer, value of RE $700, b. NY
Jane, age 18, b. NY

There is one other Jones family in Columbia Twp. in this census:

Albert Jones Columbia, Lorain, OH abt 1801 New York
Betsey Jones Columbia, Lorain, OH abt 1807 Virginia
Sarah J Jones Columbia, Lorain, OH abt 1841 O
Seth Jones Columbia, Lorain, OH abt 1832 New York
A J Jones Columbia, Hamilton, OH abt 1828 Ohio


According to the link to Lorain County via the USGenWeb.net, I found the following cemetery notation:

In the Westview Cemetery (aka Old Baker or Hoadley) (it looks like you might already have this information):

JONES (JONAS)
Stephen, d 6 or 11 Mar 1843, 50y

The age matches the 1840 census notation.
