1860 data for some Brogdens in Henry co, TN ??

What is the source of this 1860 Brogden census data
that you quote?

Is it a film of the actual census sheets or an abstract?

I have only an abstract of the 1860 census for Henry county,
Tennessee and the data does not agree with yours for this

For Henry county in 1860, it shows a family group of:

Thersey Brogden 39
Margaret 35
William 11
George 7
Sophronia T. 1

No John or Cordelia are listed with this family.

On the same page, however, it lists separately, living
in another unspecified household:

John Brogden 55

and also on the same page, another family as follows:

James Brogden 27
Sarah 21
Cordelia 1

To understand this data we need to look at the census for

In Henry county in 1850, we have what appears to be the
same family, given acceptable age differences of only 1-3
years, listed as:

John 47 [NC]
Theresa 27 [KY]
Margaret 22
James 18
Catherine 16
Henry 14
Franklin 12
Ann 9
William 3

From this, it appears likely that Theresa or Thersey was
the second wife of John (who was living in another
household in 1860) and James with daughter Cordelia in
1860 appears to be John's son from the 1850 household.

From other sources and family models, I have deduced that
this is the family of John Brogden who married Susannah
Hoofman in Granville county, NC in 1824. Susannah is
thought to have died by 1845.

Please check your sources re this matter. I am hoping to
resolve these discrepancies. It won't be the first time
I have discovered an error in sources.

Is anyone researching this family of John Brogden and
his putative wives, Susannah Hoofman and Theresa UNKNOWN?
