I believe this family is in Iowa in the 1850 census.Oskaloosa, Mahaska County.The last name is spelled Soey there. Jese? age 48, born: NJ?, Mary, age 46, born: VA, Children: John, 23-Ohio, Rebecca, 18-Ohio, Martha, 16-IN, Abraham, 13-IL and Matilda, 3-Iowa. So according to the birth locations they were on the move.
I have a few more speculative ideas for the children. I am not a Sooy descendant, my ancestor was a Bradford. CB
