James and Harriet Dash and Gates in 1850 PA Census
I have a James Dash (Age 25)and Harriet Dash (18)living with my ancestor Joseph Gates (60) a blacksmith born in NY, Nancy Gates (38) , Henrietta Gates (9) and Herman Gates (7). Everyone but Joseph Gates was born in PA. This data in on the 1850 PA Census, Roll 795, pp 351-352, Lycoming County, Williamsport Borough.
Another Joseph D. Gates, machinist (32) b. in NY is married to Mary Jane (maiden name ukn), and another Henrietta (4) and Herman (2).
I'm wondering if James Dash is an in-law or possibly apprentice to Joseph.The family moved to southern NJ, then to Herkimer County NY, and then down to FL (1905).Any links, coincidences?
