Meredith Burgess, "United States Census, 1850"' (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M8DC-R78 : Meredith Burgess, Logan county, part of, Logan, Virginia, United States; citing family 284, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.). Note: Meredith and Matilda's ages do not match quite right in prior and subsequent censuses. It is impossible to tell their exact birth years given the different responses from each census.


Meredith Burgess, "United States Census, 1860'" (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M41D-D1D : Meredith Burgess, 1860.


Meredith Burgess, "United States Census, 1870"' (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MZ4G-ZK1 : Meredith Burgess, West Virginia, United States; citing p. 19, family 157, NARA microfilm publication M593 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 553,190. Note: Meredith and Matilda are mentioned twice on separate pages of the 1870 Census. Their ages are a bit construed as well and slightly different in both entries. It appears a Burgess family member spoke to the census taker on their behalf as well as another Burgess family member (or Meredith himself) later in the day. None the less, the family is quite a large family spread across different dwellings seemingly in close proximity to one another. Perhaps this led to some confusion.
