Re: henry barney1815 & Massey Lucas
In the ten seconds since I posted my response, I went back to HeritageQuest and studied the census again.Indeed, it does say that Mary Cooper has been md. for 24 years, and had 14 children of whom 11 are still living.The oldest son, Thomas Cooper, is 26 years old, obviously born before Mary and Joseph Cooper were married!So, I made a mistake before in assuming that this Thomas Cooper's birth conflicted with the birth of Curtis Edwin Barney, the youngest child of Henry and Mary (Powell) Barney.Sorry 'bout that!
