Re: Need 1850 or later US Census look-up please
I looked up Cortes on Ancestry.com and someone has posted a tree on the Ancestry family tree part of this site.You don't have to be a member of Ancestry.com to view this tree.Enter Cortes Lynch then follow prompts to Trees and Communities then to Ancesty family tree.The children listed match what I found looking in the census'.
David and Nancy Lynch, parents of Cortes and David, had a dtr. named Nancy.She was born 1850 and she shows up again in the 1870 census with Nancy.In 1870 census at Wythe township, Elizabeth City, VA, Nancy is shown as head of household, age 60, Nancy age 20, seamstress, David 12, school. and Cortes, age 22 clerk in grocery.Perhaps Nancy married a Mosby, though I didn't find a match with a quick search.
Hope this helps
