Notes: This is Margaret's last census; she dies in five years, at age 59, six months before the deaths of Robertís parents. Niece Mary Francis Baker (daughter of Margaretís sister Isabel), who came to live with them ďduring Margaretís long illness,Ē is not here yet -- she is 25, living in Lewisport (Hancock) Kentucky with her mother, stepfather John Colbert, sister Sarah 22, and four half-siblings. **Margaret thought her mother was born in Ohio, but it was Pennsylvania (Margaretís mother herself answers Pennsylvania on the 1850, 1860 and 1870 censuses).
