Allen was in Washington Co, New York in 1850. Listed as age 57 with property valued at $10,900. Anna was 54. Elisha, 26, Lydia 18, Cornelia 14, Moses A. age 15. Mary W. Peckham age 5 lived with family, possibly a grandaughter. All born in New York. Timothy Donovan age 26, born in Ireland also lived with the family. Hiram & family lived next door.
1860. Allen, age 64, Anna 44 [obviously an error. Hiram still lived next door] Closer study of this census entry shows that the enumerator got one number off in recording the ages of Allen & Anna and the family of Hiram Gifford. This is the second occurence of this that I have found. The farm laborer recorded in the household immediately above that of Allen Gifford givens his age as "67" which is the correct age of Allen. That would then make Anna 64 which would be correct. Hiram's family is also off one line - he was the person that was age 44, not his mother Anna. His wife Lois and daughters Elizabeth & Europa also have incorrect ages.
1870. Allen Gifford, now age 77, retired farmer, and Anna age 75, are living in the same household with Hiram and family. Hiram's two daughters were still living at home, unmarried.
