Two Willis Donahoes, 1850 Montgomery County TX Census
Posted by: Steve Moody (ID *****1564) Date: August 07, 2002 at 06:54:34

I'm trying to sort out the 2 different Willis Donahos that are on the 1850 Walker County census. Here is what the census has on sheet 256a:

30 72 72 Donahoe Willis 46 M Far 88 S Car
31 72 72 Donahoe Hannah 43 F Geo
32 72 72 Donahoe Matilda 13 F Texas
33 72 72 Donahoe Thos 9 M Texas
34 72 72 Donahoe Julie 6 F Texas
35 72 72 Donahoe David 4 M Texas

Also on sheet 256b:

1 75 75 Donahoe Willis 39 M F Far 1,000 Miss X
2 75 75 Donahoe Mary 28 F Miss
3 75 75 Donahoe Madison 14 M Texas
4 75 75 Donahoe Laurinda 8 F Texas
5 75 75 Donahoe Matthew 7 M Texas
6 75 75 Donahoe Calvin 6 M Texas
7 75 75 Donahoe Matilda 6/12 F Texas

In my records I had only one Willis, the son of Daniel David Donaho and Nancy Larimore. I had his birth date as 1811 and had his wife as Hannah Glass. I had shown children:
F i Mary Donaho.
M ii Calvin Donaho.
F iii Lorioda Donaho.
F iv Matilda Donaho.
M v Thomas Donaho.
F vi Abia Donaho.

No dates on any of the children. My records seem to be a mix of the two Willises. Can anyone sort them out for me? Who are the parents of the other Willis?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
