    NOTE: In the 1850 census, the household of Mary Mehorter includes a male, Richard Mehorter, age 8. Mary's daugher Rachel, age 8, is not listed. There is no other mention of a "Richard" Mehorter in family or government documents. The name Richard does not appear as a family name in future generation. The most likely explanation is that the name Rachel was was recorded as "Richard" by the census enumerator.
