Asel and Elizabeth appeared on census of 19 Oct. 1850 at Marshall County, Virginia. The census taker wrote the following very unusual note:
"This family can all read though none but the father (Asel) can write. Asel Poulson is the oldest resident in the county. He is called a half-breed Indian but my impression is that he is full breed. He is very frail now, but at 100 years old, could do a full days work..."
