I’m not related to any member of this family.
1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.
Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"
Immigration date is not recorded
1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members with their birthplaces
1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++
- - Birth & Death records for Missouri began in 1910 - -
So, If William died in MO before 1910 there will be no record.
He may have also died on the way to IDAHO?????
