Where did you find the 1860 MI Census? I would like to buy this inf.
In the 1870 MI Census online this is what I have (you most likely do, also).
Pg. 20 August 7, 1870~Leslie, Ingham County, MI
Line 21, dwelling # 182, family 182:
Jaycox ("y" may or may not be visible), Henry-40,M,W, Farmer, b. OHIO, but this may be an error, if the taker wasn't listening & they had been discussing Ohio.
Clarissa, 40, F, W, Ohio
Henrietta, 19, F, W, Michigan
James, it looks like "10" to me, but is probably 18, which would explain him alive in the 1860 census at age 7 & give or take 10 yrs & a few months, 18, in 1870. I will go online & enlarge the image for a better look.
Per Daniel & Polly Tainter's 1828 Bible these are the dates of birth for Nathan & Louise (Sarah) Jeffords children:
Lewis Daniel Jeffords, b. Oct. 15, 1855.
Charles Jefferson Jeffords, b. Oct. 18, 1857.
Emma Louise Jeffords, b. May 21, 1860.
Mary Sonia (?) Jeffords, b. Feb. 3rd, 1861.
I assume all born in Ingham County, MI. When their father, Nathan Gleason Fillmore Jeffords, passed away & by 1900 Sarah JEFFORDS is listed as Head of Household in Kalamazoo,MI:
June 1, 1900
Roll 720, Book 2, page 33
Jeffords, Sarah~age 67
Charles J.~age 48, son
Mary S. or "I".~age 37, dau (actually, I believe she fudged her age, she should be closer to 40)
Lizzie L., daughter-in-law, age 38?
Nettie D., cousin, age 17.
I know of these names, living with Sarah Louise Tainter Jeffords. Our Tainter Bible spells their name Jeffords, but 1870 MI census spells it "Jefferds".
In the 1880 Charlevoix, MI Census, my grandmother, Madge Tainter (Maggie in 1870 Onondaga MI Census~1 yr old) is listed as a "son". It seems there have always been & always will be errors. In 1850 Jackson County Census, Tainter is "Tinter". In 1860 Jackson Census, Polly & Daniel (son) Tainter are Godfrey's & the girls have fudged their ages by a few years (I would assume to save their pride).
In the 1920 Kalamazoo MI Census, my grandmother, Madge (Tainter) Brown listed herself a "widow", but she was divorced & I'm sure she said "widow" to save her dignity. My Dad, Gerald & my Uncle Vincent are listed with her, the middle son, Kenneth, is in Charlevoix, MI with the Tainter's.
So, it may be that "Ohio" listed as place of birth for Henry Jaycox is an error & it may be NY & the taker wrote it down in error.
Someday, someone will see our postings & know the answers, and I hope & it will all come together. I guess since there are FEW Jaycox' & Tainter & Jeffords families, it may take awhile. I had one response from a family who knew of Sarah Tainter Jeffords & the Nettie & Lizzie of 1900 & their ancestors had been given land in Charlevoix by my gr grandpa, Daniel Augustus Tainter, & they wanted a photo of his home in Boyne City, which I sent.
I think the Cortes & Henrietta Jaycox Hull descendants are our best leads & I have not had a response from any of them yet, to my many postings on Rootsweb, Genealogy.com forum or Ancestry.com. I have looked through all the old photographs I have, from the Tainters, & I believe I only have the one of Cortes & Henrietta Hull.
I will keep searching.
Do you have the 1860 MI Census on a CD ROM? I would like the 1850, 1860, 1870, & 1880 MI census if available.
