I would be most appreciative if anyone can help with information about the two Maria BARNEYs listed in two separate households in LaPorte County in the 1850 federal census.Both are listed as being 19 years of age, and I am curious if they may be one and the same person.
One is listed in the household of David BARNEY (pg. 183A), apparently the daughter of David and Hannah (both 52 years of age in this census).Birthplaces of Maria and parents listed as New York for each.Date on the header of this census page is 18 Sep 1850.
The other is listed in the household of Luther MANN, Jr.(pg. 263A).The birthplace of Maria is listed here as Pennsylvania.Date on the header of this census page is 9 Aug 1850.
Maria BARNEY married John ROBERTS in La Porte County, Indiana on 28 Dec 1854, and she would be my GG-grandmother.
