Census Index: U.S. Selected Counties, 1840

Kirby, William State : VA County : Tyler Co.
Year : 1840 Page # : 011
Additional source information : (NOW WV)


William KERBY

Males 70-80 =1 born 1760-1770 [WM Sr.]
Females 50-60=1 born 1780-1790 [Lydia]
Females 20-30=1 1810-1820 [Probably a child of WM & Liddy with her 2 children]
Females under 5=1 1835-1840
Female 5-10=1 1830-1835

This census also provides a place where a person who served in the Rev. War and that person was collecting pension could check off, WM didn't respond to this part of the census. This would lead me to believe that his age would have been closer to 1770 that 1760 or there would probably be service in the War.

===========================================



Also, William & Lydia's oldest son, Peter M. KIRBY stayed in Tyler county through the 1850 Census. This leads me to believe that William & Lydia died in Tyler County and not Marshall County as we have once believed.

A land record states:

Acres Date received by Sold By:

03/23/1847 James Kirby Lydia & William Kirby of Tyler Co. and James Abram of Marshall Co., James & his heirs forever. Sum of $300.

William deeded land to his son James in Marshall County but he was still in Tyler Coulnty in 1847!
