    1850 U.S. Federal Census
    searching....see mother's notes

    By 1850 her oldest son George was living in Darke County, Ohio. Her son Bird was recently married and found with his young wife. Her daughter Susan had been married 7 years (searching 1850 census) and should be with her husband. Only her youngest son Samuel D., with whom she was living in 1860 and 1870, is unmarried. I therefore believe that she was most likely with her son Samuel in 1850.
