2 Gilbert Humphrey listed on 1850 GA Census
There are 2 Gilbert Humphrey listed on the 1850 Baits, Cobb County, Georgia census.Both are 24 yrs old and both born in GA.One is listed as head of household.His brother Zebulon lives with him.Zebulon's wife, Martha (Fuller) Humphrey lives with them as well as Zebulon's 2 children, Jesse J (2-yrs old) and Wm A. (1-yr old).
In an adjoining household lives Jesse Humphrey 51-yrs old and his wife Sarah (Stepp) Humphrey 57? yrs old.In this household also lives Gilbert Humphrey 24-yrs old.
In 1853 one of these Gilberts married Clarissa Tropp in Georgia.In 1872, either this same Gilbert or another Gilbert marries Sarah Winn in Paulding, GA.Does anyone know who the parents are of the first Gilbert Humphrey who lives with his brother Zebulon?I don't believe Jesse is the father of this Gilbert or Zebulon. Why would Jesse name 2 of his sons (who are the same age) Gilbert?Help!!!!!
