I have not copied the info pertaining to these families into my file that I found in the 1850 census of Jefferson County, Texas, however if you would like that information also, please let me know. I'll be happy to retrieve & forward it on to you. It is the sequence of households & household members and their ages that convince me that the above information is correct.
