The Lovelady in question is on the 1850 census of Andrew County, Missouri. He has a wife, Nancy, same age bp VA. Children are: Susan, 25; Elijah, 21; Serelda J., 17; Sarah, 16; Elizabeth, 13; Rebecca, 11; and William B., 9; Andrew H.?, 7; and Francis M., 3.
Serelda is listed after Francis M., but the census taker squoze part of another family from another dwelling in the middle of this family. This family is split at the bottom of one page and top of another.
I found Moses Lovelady in Andrew County in 1860 and wondered if it is the same family. Nancy's bp is listed as MO on the 1860 census, and a couple of the names for the children still at home are different. There's a boy about Andrew's age, but he's listed as Jackson. I know Andrew Jackson was a popular name choice. Census 1850 shows Andrew's middle initial to look like an H. or K., but perhaps it's a J. The census work around this family does look sloppy. Also, Francis M., who's 3 in 1850 would be represented by Franklin who's 15 in 1860.
I would appreciate it if you could clear this up for me. Thanks in advance for your help.
