1850 Rusk census Texas not on 1860 census Note from Helen Price: Do you remember No. 409 Report filed Jany 26th 1858? It listed the c hildren as Mary AnnTimmons, Hannah Ann Timmons & Barsheba Ann Timmons? Rusk Co Deeds Boo k J pg 461 dated 12th day of December AD 1855 had the children as Mary A,. Hannah & Anne Timm ons. There were just 2 on the 1860 census in Rusk (living with Hannah) &Mcleanna (living wit h Isaac) and buried with Timmons at Smith Park is Julia Timmons, b 1848 & d 1850's. The 185 0 census in Rusk has Simmons instead of Timmons with Mary, age 12, Hannah,age 6 and Julia, ag e 2. Barsheba must have beenborn after the census was taken in 1850 because she shows up a s 11 on 1860 census and this census had H Ann (Hannah or Hattie?) age 13. This one would b e18 in 1865. This doesn't match the age for Hannah on the 1850 census. But remember wha t a mess the census was when my cousin from CA wrote you and you sentme? On the 1850 census , Mary and Hannah had *s by their name so maybe they weren't sure. Wish they would use the s ame name for census and legal papers!
