Notes: Curiously, by 1830, Elizabeth, 73, is living alone. Son Jehiel died almost seven years ago, and Jehiel’s wife Sarah Vandolah just four months later, leaving four young orphans ages 5 months-6 years. Elizabeth’s son Adley, 33 (with whom Elizabeth lived in 1820), married three years ago and is the guardian of all four of his brother’s orphans, but only John 8 lives with him. The eldest child Elizabeth, now 12, lives with “her uncle” Isaac Cook; Annis, age 10, lives with John Leavitt and Mary Jane, age 6, with Otho Williams. Son Andrews also lives in Madison, next door to Adley, but not apparently next door to Elizabeth (she is two pages away, while Adley and Andrews are touching entries). By 1830, her daughter Betsey’s husband Jared Strong died three years ago, and she married John Davis sometime this year (but not clear which census data for John Davis is hers). Nehemiah’s widow has married Jacob Ebert and still lives in Cadiz. It is curious that now, with so many orphaned grandchildren, Elizabeth would choose to live alone, and it is not clear if Elizabeth is in the same home and Adley moved into his own home, or vice versa.
