*[They also have two Brown children 12 and 10. Note that
Jaly was with her father on the 1860 census, so the Brown
children aren't hers. William's age is consistent with
this being a second marriage. Sarah and Lily are, I think,
Jaly's daughters born out of wedlock. Possibly Sarah is
d/o of Jaly's brother Green (see 1860 census), but he
separated from his wife before 1860 so can't be Lily's
father. The 1880 census shows Jaley as mother of both
