At the recording of the 1850 Census Benjamin was declared as 53 years old, however

records indicate he died in 1856 at age 66.  By the census account he should have

been 59 in 1856.  These age differences are troubling.

 

Reading the Census of 1850 there was a Hannah Bird - Black 16 years old, listed on the

Census Report.   My Guess is she boarded and worked as a house servant on the farm.

Morrisville at the United Methodist Church.

William Jones and Mary Colbert on her mother's side, and her father's side:

 her grandparents were James Henry Humphrey and his first wife Mary McConchie.

His second wife was Jane McConchie. So that makes William "Jeter" and Henry Calvin

half brothers. Same fathers different mothers. Jeter married Nora Blanch Edwards.

Jeter owned Eastern View Farm and sold it to a Mr Jacobs (who use to be a

farm hand on Eastern View). The farm is now being run by his Mr. Jacob's sons.
