1850 U.S. CENSUS for District 72, Pulaski, Missouri
Greenberry Sapp died in 1848 and, consequently, was not listed in the 1850 census.
Mary Ann “Polly” (Morris) Sapp married Lamuel Elam in January 1849. She is listed in the 1850 census (family # 461) with Lamuel and his six children, ages 6 – 20, from his first family. Also included were James Franklin Elam (5 month old son of Lamuel and Mary Ann) and William J K P Montgomery (8 month old son of Lamuel’s daughter Nancy (Elam) Montgomery). Mary Ann would die shortly thereafter, perhaps due to complications with James Franklin’s birth.
Sarah Sapp is listed in the 1850 census (family # 455) with her husband Henry Dye and their six children, ages 1-18. Also listed is Sarah’s 18 year old sister, Delilah Sapp.
