  • Documents
    1856 State Census for Iowa, United States
    1856 State Census for Iowa, United States
    Census shows Levi Moffet, with wife Antoinette, children Joseph Moffet with his wife Caroline, Roffinne (or Rozzinne), Uphema, Zorah A and Milah or Lilah. The next family listed is that of Levi's daughter Lucinda, her husband H T Fairbanks and their 2 children.
    1870 Federal Census of United States
    1870 Federal Census of United States
    Census shows Joseph Moffet with wife Caroline, children Charles, Ramo, Rosa and Euphemia. Antinetta is probably Joseph's step mother - ie Joseph's father's second wife. Zorah and Lilly are Antinetta's children, so Joseph's half siblings.

  • Notes 
    • Caroline’s husband’s father’s second wife is Antoinette Ruff. From the 1856 Iowa State census we learn that both Caroline and Antoinette were born in Missouri, and both have been in Iowa for 17 years - so it seems very likely they’re related. They are 19 years apart in age, so perhaps are mother/daughter - Roger 16 Jan 2009
