I am just getting started with the Shroyer genealogy. I have worked at it off and on but I have some questions I hope someone can answer. In the Bedford Co. 1850 census, there is a May Shroyer age 60 listed along with Polly age 30, Betsy age 26, Daniel age 17 (who would be the father of Lewis D. and the line I am trying to follow), Adam age 12, Susan age 10, Andrew age 8 and Moses age 6. May appears to be the mother of all the others, and there is no "adult" male listed. Any thoughts as to whose widow she was? Is Polly perhaps a daughter in law, and Andrew and Moses Polly's children? I haven't been able to find May, Polly, Andrew or Moses in subsequent census'.
Thanks for the help.
