    1850 US Federal Census for Milford Township, Knox Co., Ohio, USA
    1850 US Federal Census for Milford Twp., Knox Co., Ohio, USA
    Census shows family of John Dunn and his wife Ellenor with children Lydia, Elizabeth, Samuel, John, Isaiah, William, Jeremiah, Robt and Lydia. Given that there are 2 Lydias in this family it’s possible that the youngest Lydia is a child of the older Lydia or Elizabeth?
    1880 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    1880 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    Census shows Jeremiah Dunn, with his wife Elizabeth L (Moffitt), son Alva, and daughters Eva aged 3 and an Infant aged 3 days.
    1900 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    1900 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    Census shows Jeremiah Dunn with his wife Elizabeth (Moffitt) and 5 of their 6 remaining living children Eva May, Claud, Nora, Mary Bell and Wm Seth. There is confusion about the birthplaces of the childrens’ parents - according to 1880 Census Jeremiah was born in Ohio and Elizabeth in North Carolina. So the children should all shows Ohio and North Carolina for the parents’ birthplace, but instead it shows main Maryland and North Carolina, even though Jeremiah’s line shows he was born Ohio, and one child it shows simply “US US”

  • Notes 
    • Jeremiah Dunn says in the 1880 and 1900 Census that he was born in Ohio and his father in Maryland and his mother in Maryland. In 1910 he says his father was born in Ohio and his mother in Maryland. The Jeremiah as a child in this family in 1850 had parents born in Maryland (father) and Pennsylvania (mother) - not an exact match, but it seems likely it’s the right one.
