Census workers seem to spell the name different every 10 years!! Anyway---I am looking for connections for my Marcelis heritage. They seem to appear and disappear...I found Elizabeth T (Marcella) born 1798 on the 1850 census--here children and grands are

Elizabeth T Marcella        52
John E Marcella        31
Ann Eliza Marcella        25
Elizabeth R Marcella        23 This should be listed Christopher
Mary C Marcellas        20
Charles M Marcella        16
Elizabeth E Marcella        23
John E Marcella        4
Charles M Marcella        1
William Christopher on the census is married to Elizabeth R

I am looking for info on Elizabeth T b1798 and her husband whom I believe is named John....

I don't know if both Eliz/John were born in PA.

Seems like many of these Marcelis folk moved to VA before the next census...and again under a new spelling!

Thanks for any help
