Actually NO, they listed ALL their children being born in OH, and they got married in Jackson Co., in 1842 or 1843, was in the neighboring county of Vinton in 1860 and 1870, so they HAD to be in OH.

Mary was born in 1843 in OH
Elizabeth was born in 1847 in OH
Zilpha was born in 1850 in OH

I even tried searching the entire US for them in 1850. NOTHING!!!!

I would love to know what name they are enumerated under. I searched by partical names, by soundex names, by ages, by the township of Clinton, by different counties, and even by each of their names individually. You would think that with the name of Agnes, or Daniel or of Lucas, and even Zilpha (if she was born before the census was taken) would be easy to locate in little back water counties like Jackson and Vinton.

(Please do not take offense at the term 'back water', but that is exactly what those two counties are. I have a brother in each of those counties, and they are the among the bottom 5 counties of Ohio as far as 'economics' goes. They are a nice place to retire, but to earn a living, forget it.)
