Martha Frost, 71, has been widowed 12 years. This is her last census; she will die in two years. The home is enumerated in her son Jacob’s name, who is 35 and not married. The three daughters at home are Frances (45), Hannah (33) and Martha Rayburn (24). Martha was married six years ago, but her husband died in 1829 apparently leaving her with three young children although only daughter Margaret is known for sure—perhaps the other two died young. Martha does not remarry for eight more years and will then have five more children; Jacob, Frances and Hannah never marry.

Living nearby are all of Martha’s other children with their families: William (47) with his wife and seven children, Isaac (40) with his wife and five children, Mary Reeves (36) with her husband and nine children, and Margaret McClimans (26) with her husband and two children. And even her great-grandchildren are nearby: Letitia Howsmon Britton and her four children.

The Howsmon homestead was a large two-story partly log home on a rising mound just west of the little stream. The Howsmons were strict Presbyterians, insisting that on the Sabbath, no work be done, all talking be in whispers and that children should not laugh.
