Re: Elizabeth Ross (1826-1909)
In Response To: Re: Elizabeth Ross (1826-1909) ()

There are people in the 1850 Census household. The 1850 census does not ask for "relationships" to the head of household

Lawrence Taliaferro, 56, M, the race column is blank, which means White.
Eliza Taliaferro, 44, F, race column blank
Mary L. F.Taliaferro, 15, F, race column blank

Eliza JOHNSTON, 38, F, B(lack)
Susan Johnston, 16, F, M(ulatto)
John Johnston, 7, M, M(ulatto)

Although no relationship is given I am assuming that the Eliza age 44 is Elizabeth his wife.

In an earlier post you mentioned not finding a birth record for Elizabeth ROSS in VA. Virginia did not start keeping birth and death records on a county level until 1853.
