Census Notes for Eli Dickerson
1870 census of Floyd Co., Virginia, Indian Valley & Burks Fork townships, enumerated 23 Aug, lists on p. 22 as family #143/135:
Dickerson, Eli, 43; Luanna, 35; William T., 17; George, 16; Charlotte, 14; Leonard, 13; Henry A., 10; Jeremiah, 7; Catherine, 3; Elim, 7/12, b. Oct; Wade, Mary, 13; Asa, 10. All born in Virginia.
Notes for Luanna Wade
This family is confusing. There is no marriage record for Owen and Luanna, nor is there any death record for Braxton or Owen, nor any birth records for Mary and Asa. I figure any of the following are possible:
1. Luanna married only Braxton, both Mary and Asa are his, and she was just residing in the same household with his brother Owen in the two years between Braxton’s death (unrecorded) and her remarriage to Eli Dickerson in 1862.
2. Luanna married Owen some time after Braxton’s death but for some reason the marriage wasn’t recorded, in which case Asa or even both of the children may be Owen’s.
3. Braxton and Owen are in fact the same person, who was mistakenly listed twice in 1850.
Unfortunately the 1860 census does not record relationships or marital status.
