John Baptist and Sarah Paxton's Children/Monroe, Michigan
Posted by: Aileen Blomgren (ID *****8177) Date: March 25, 2011 at 10:23:14

I am confused by some of John B. and Sarah Paxton's children in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 census of Monroe County, Michigan. Specifically:

1860 Children are:
Thomas (13), John (10), Clara (7), Clarissa - female (4), and Henry (2)

1870 Children are:
Thomas (23), John (19), Carrie (16), Clarence - male (14), Harry (12), Edelbert (9) and Lilian (5)

1880 Children are:
Clarence - male (24), Harry (22), Bertrand (20), and Lilian (15)

Are "Carrie" and "Clara" the same person? I have photo of a grave marker for a Caroline, daughter of John and Sarah. She died April 24, 18XX and she fits in here somewhere, too.

Is Clarence mis-marked in the 1860 census as "Clarissa-female"?

Finally, John B's wife is possibly listed as "Carry G" in the 1860 census, but in the 1850, 1870, and 1880 census she is listed as Sarah. Who is Carry G? And who is Eliza (age 40) who shows up with the family in that 1860 census?

Thanks so much! The puzzle is driving me nuts.
