The 1850 Census of Henry County Iowa Shows an Isaac Bales who had nine (9) children: William, Age 19; Mary, Age 17; Joseph, Age 15; Elizabeth, Age 14 (Right Age for your Elizabeth); Lucinda, Age 13; Melissa, Age 10, Jessie, Age 8 (Right age for your and my Jessie); John (Johnnie?), age 6; Isaac, Age 4. Isaac Sr. was born in Ohio. The first five (5) children were born in Indiana. The last four (4) were born in Iowa. There was no indication of any child named Clem. There were two (2) other Bales familys in the same census headed by Edward, who had four (4) children; no wife shown, and Jesse, who had a wife Mary and four children. I am interested in where you located the birth date of Jesse(ie). I have determined that he is my grandfather and knowing your source may help me later. I obtained his birth date from his death certificate.
