Re: Mary Pulse listed in 1840 census
This may help: Boltz/Pulse/Puls/Pults are the same name.Try Mary Boltz in the Middleway (Smithfield), Jefferson Co, VA now W.VA area.
Pulses in Tennessee in my tree:
Pulse, George Washington - Jefferson Co. Tennessee
Pulse, Frederick - Jefferson, Tennessee, USA
Pulse, William - Tennessee
Pults, Armilda - Tennessee
Pults, Eli - Fentress Co. Tennessee
Pults, Elizabeth - Fentress Co. Tennessee
Pults, Esther Ann – Tennessee
If you have not made the Boltz/Pulse connection let me know, I have now found documentation in pension records.
