NOTES: Surname is being spelled many different ways over the years, which makes it very difficult to follow the family. Also ages for all the family goes all over the chart as well, which makes it difficult to determine the correct ages.

NOTES: I have not found the name of his first wife yet. However, with the ages of his 3 children in 1860 there could be at least two different mother's for the 3 children listed.
