Research Notes

1870 census image shows Abram's 'wife' as Jane, not Henrietta, but since they married in 1860 and she is in 1860 and 1880 census with Abram with same children as 1870 census, the 1870 Census name and birth location is incorrect. Correction has been submitted to family search Oct 2020 for her name and birthplace for 1870 census.

Henrietta is listed as mother of children listed in 1870 census, also.
