Re: Desire Northup b. 1828 RI

In Reply to: Desire Northup b. 1828 RI by Dianne of 237

I did a search based upon your info. The RI Death Index has Daniel Pollard d. on 12/22/1885 at age 53, which makes his birth year 1831 or 1832. Desire Pollard d. on 8/11/1886 at age 60, so her birth year is probably 1825-1826.
Based upon your marriage record data, Desire should have still lived at home during the 1850 census; so, I checked the East Greenwich census for 1850. I did not find Desire, but I did find Daniel:

1850 RI Kent Co. East Greenwich p. 224A

Last Name First MI age sex Occupation
Pollard Earl P 48 m Weaver
Hannah T 46 f
Daniel B 21 m Carder
Albert G 19 m
Julia E 11 f
Charles B 9 m
George B 7 m

[Note: Daniel is 21 in 1850, so he was born in 1828 or 1829, different from the RI Death Index result]

I also found a John Northup living at a boarding house with his son(?):

1850 RI Kent Co. East Greenwich p. 233A
Last Name First MI age sex Occupation
Northup John 50 m Laborer
John 15 m

If you can find out where Desire was living in 1850, I can check the census for this family.

Regards, PRB
