Thank you for your kind offer. I'm trying to help my sister in-law with her family research.

She is a direct descendent of Emma Elizabeth KERCHEVAL, born Oct 1845, daughter of Elizabeth and <unknown> KERCHEVAL. Emma Elizabeth married James Franklin HOWELL 17 Oct 1865 in Clarke Co.,VA. She died 12 Aug 1924 in Berryville, Clarke Co., VA. She is found in 1860 with her mother and brother.

1860 Clarke Co., VA
Berryville P.O.
Enumerated Aug 2, 1860

Dwelling 650 Family 624
KERCHEVAL, Elizabeth age 36,f,$0/$50,b:VA
KERCHAVEL, Emma age 15,f,b:VA
KERCHEVAL, Marcellus age 5,m,b: VA

The 1850 census is what prompted my to request information regarding Edward V. Kercheval.
1850 census
12th District, Clarke Co.,VA

Enumerated August 23, 1850

Dwelling 579 Family 579

KERCHEVAL, Elizabeth C. age 1,f,b:VA
KERCHEVAL, Elizabeth age 30,f,b:VA
KERCHEVAL. John Harvey age 5, b:VA

Who is the 30 year old Elizabeth?? is Kercheval her married name?? Is this the same Elizabeth whose is listed as age 36 in 1860???
Is she a sister or sister-in-law to either Edward V or Ann? ? and is John Harvey KERCHEVAL a son of Elizabeth?
