There seems to be a lot of interest in the various forums re: a Pierce MOZINGO. I do not know whether he is the same Pierce MOZINGO who appears on the 1830 census for Westmoreland Co. VA (p. 124) as a male 30-40 years old.
Besides the aforementioned Pierce MOZINGO, I have located Thomas MOZINGO, age 50-60 (p. 124); Newton MOZINGO, age 20-30 (p. 125); Robin MOZINGO, age 50-60 (p. 125); and Peggy MOZINGO, a female age 50-60 (p. 126).
In 1840, there are the following people listed in the census with the MAZINGO surname: John, age 20-30; Newton, age 40-50; Thomas, age 50-60; Pierce, age 40-50; Joseph, age 20-30; Thomas, Jr., age 50-60.
I am interested in the relationships of the MOZINGO families living in Westmoreland Co., VA in this time frame, as I am seeking to locate the birth family of Jane MOZINGO, said to have been born 1826-27 in Westmoreland County, and her brother, Samuel Gideon MOZINGO, born in Virginia in June 1840.
Newton MOZINGO is a good candidate, as his children are in the correct age/gender brackets in both census years, and he was in Westmoreland Co., VA where Jane was born. Also, Jane (Mozingo) RICE named one of her children Gideon Newton RICE. Finally, a Newton MOZINGO married an Elizabeth SMITH in Westmoreland Co., VA in 1821 - and an E. MOZINGO (female, age 50) was living with Jane RICE and husband Cornelius RICE in 1850 in Washington, D.C. Newton MOZINGO cannot be located this census year, and is presumed to be deceased between 1840-1850.
(Of the MOZINGO marriages in Westmoreland Co. before 1824, no other MOZINGO males married a female with E. as the first letter of her first name.)
Can anyone help sort out these MOZINGO/MAZINGO lines?
