Souths in Wood Co., WV/VA, 1850

  of 1529

I'm interested in any an all information on the following families found in 1850 Wood Co., WV/VA Census. My great, great, great grandfather, Joseph Rowley married Elizabeth South 10/23/1860. She was 18 and 3 months pregnant. Per his Civil War Pension Record, they married in Dallison, Wood Co. Lucinda South stated in the record that they married "at my house". She also claimed to be Elizabeth's mother. Joseph and Elizabeth had 13 children and both died at abt 50 years.

Harrison South, 35, Farmer, $300, NJ, over 20, cannot read and write
Lucinda South, 31,VA, over 200, cannot read and write
John South, 12, PA, in school
Nancy South, 10 VA, in school
Elizabeth South, 8, VA
Sarah South, 6, VA
Issac/Jesse? South, 2, VA


Also in the same district is one other South family. I can only assume the 2 families are related. Possibly the elder Elizabeth South is Harrison South's mother as he is also from NJ.

Elizabeth South, 63, $600, NJ
Jane South, 33, NJ
E. South, 32, NJ, can't read or write
George South, 24, Farmer, PA, can't read or write
