    Notes 
    • Most info on Black children came from Craig book with some corroborating info from Boutwell Dunlap manuscript. Says John married Annie Ptolmy, but I have Annis Ptolmy married to Elizabeth's half-brother John Clayton & that is supported by the 1850 census.

      CENSUS:
      1850: Listed with son William in Wood Co, age 72.
      1860 June 25: Listed with son Ralph in Wood Co as age 83. A few days later she died.

    1. [S60] Calculation of birth, marriage, or death date., BOUTWELL DUNLAP'S NOTES SAY A COUSIN SAYS BETSY RICE WAS BORN IN 1781, POSSIBLY IN ALBEMARLE CO, VA. (Reliability: 0).
      Dunlap also says tombstone (Jul 8, 1860, aged 81 years and 5 mos) computes birthdate to be 8 Feb 1779. Marriage bond says she is "of age" (at least 21) in June 1800, so that also points to a 1779 or earlier birthdate. Age given in censuses indicates a birthdate of 1777-1779.
