1850 Census - Amanda Payne is living with parents Alfred and Sarah Payne. I assume they are her parents. This is the only Amanda Payne that I can match up with my family line. I don't know for sure.After 1850 Amanda Payne is no longer on the census living with Alfred and Sarah PAYNE. They are living in Prince William, Virginia
1860 Census - Amanda Payne is living with William, Pricilla and Mary Evans. She is not living with her parents. Who are the Evans? Why is she living with them? They are living in Prince Willia, Virginia.
1870 Census - Amanda Pane is now living in Loudoun County, Virginia living with Lewis and Clora Pinket and family
1880 Census - Amanda Payne is in Loudoun County, Virginia working as a cook living in the home of Joseph and Tamonie Dillon
1900 Census - She is listed as Mandy Gracson living in Washington, D.C. with her son Samuel Payne
1910 Cenus - She is listed as Mandy Grayson living in Washington D.C. as the Head of the Household
According to my family history my greatgandmother, Mandy Grayson, was from Loudoun County, Virginia.
I believe I have the right person from 1870 - 1910.
I am not sure about 1850 and 1860. I am not sure whether I should count that Amanda Payne as the same person living in Loudoun County, Virginia. I seem to think that she is the same person. What do you think.
