I checked the 1850 census today and found David and Lucinda Ackerson living in Roxbury, Washington, Ohio.The following were living in the household.
David age 27 Lucinda age 26 William age 7 Dorothea age 5 Joe age 3 John age 2 months James age 22
David and James were listed as laborers and there was a note that Lucinda could not read or write.They were all born in Ohio.Since John was only two months old I am assuming he was born in Roxbury.It was also interesting since I had his birthdate as Mar 1951 which was obviously wrong.Funny since that is what is on his headstone.
The census had very limited information and lacked a relationship column.I am assuming James was David's brother and will continue to try to verify this.I hope to search the 1840 census in the near future and see if I can find parents of David living in Washington Co., Ohio.There were also several Ackersons in Clark Co., Ohio. So I plan to look both places.
