In Reply to: Daniel Yant of Washington Co., PA (d 1866) by Leslie Nelson of 226

I too am having problems proving that Daniel was the son of Valentine Yant. Samuel McMillan's Manuscript p. 219 notes that Pigeon Creek Cemetery records indicate that Valentine Yant died June 4, 1845 age 93 b. 1752 and Evina?(Morrow Co., OH 1880 History call her Louisa & other researchers refer to her as Lovina)his wife died March, 1845 age 95 b. 1750. Daniel Yant was born in 1802 which make his mother Louisa 52 years old at the time, which is generally considered past child bearing age.

The Census records for Nottingham Twp., Washington Co. from 1810 to 1820 do not seem to have a place for Daniel listed as the son of Valentine.

The 1810 Census listing for Felty(Valentine) Yant is as follows:
1 male over 45 - Felty (Valentine) b. 1752 age 58
1 female over 45 - Louisa b. 1750 age 60
1 male 16-25 - Abraham b. 1791 age 19, son of Valentine
2 females under 10 - Unnamed daughters of Valentine

The 1820 Census listing for Felty(Valentine) Yant is as follows:
1 male over 45 - Felty(Valentine) b. 1752 age 68
1 male 26-45 - Abraham b. 1791 age 29
1 female 26-45 - Catherine Snyder(Abraham's wife) b. 1794 age 26
1 female 16-26 - Unnamed daughter of Valentine
2 males under 10 - Valentine b. 1818 age 2 and Jacob b. 1819 age 1, sons of Abraham
NOTE: Valentine's wife Louisa is not listed in this Census.

In the 1830 Census Abraham Yant and his family are listed separately from his father Valentine. Daniel Yant and his family are listed for the first time in Washington Co. This listing Indexed as Daniel Vant is as follows:
1 male 30-40 - Daniel b. 1802 age 28
1 female 20-30 - Sarah Applegate( Daniel's wife) b. 1807 age 23
1 male under 5 - James Harvey b. 1827 age 3
1 female under 5 - Martha b. 1830 age less than 1

In the 1830 Census Valentine b. 1752 age 78 and his wife Louisa b. 1750 age 80 are listed as 70 to 80 years old. In the 1840 Census they are listed as 80 to 90 years old or age 88 and 90 respectively so their birth dates appear to be correct.
