1850 U.S. Census, Virginia, Wetzel County

ID#1443, b. 1 June 1850
As households were enumerated in a census (1850 and later), they were given consecutive dwelling numbers. Looking at the numbers shown below, consecutive numbers indicate "next door" neighbors, close numbers indicate families living near each other.

Note that there is a link for the head of most households that will take you to that individual's person page containing detailed information for him or her. If you click the link but your browser stays on this page, it indicates that there is no detailed person page included yet for that individual. An easy way to confirm that this is the case is to check for the person's name in the "Surname Index" - names only appear for people with a person page. Those types of links will gradually disappear as I continue adding people from my database.

Original spelling is retained in the information below - be aware that census records often contain many inaccuracies.

Daniel Church1

ID#1447, b. 30 June 1848, d. 25 January 1929
Father: Samuel Church
Mother: Sarah Elizabeth Anderson

Birth date: 30 June 1848.2 It has also been reported that Daniel was born in May 1847.3
Birth place: Burton, Wetzel County, Virginia.2

Daniel married Sarah Merriner.2

He was a saw mill laborer per the 1870 federal census4 and was a sawyer on a saw mill per the 1880 census.5 By the time of the 1900 census, he was working as a blacksmith3 and was self-employed in his own blacksmith shop per the 1910 census.6 He was no longer working by the time of the 1920 census when he was 71 years old and living with his son, Lewis.7 It's interesting that his death certificate indicated that he was a carpenter by trade when that was never an occupation reported on any of the census records I have found.2

Daniel died at age 80 from influenza on 25 January 1929 at Cameron, Marshall County, West Virginia.2

1860 U.S. Census, Virginia, Ritchie County

ID#1457, b. 1 June 1860
As households were enumerated in a census (1850 and later), they were given consecutive dwelling numbers. Looking at the numbers shown below, consecutive numbers indicate "next door" neighbors, close numbers indicate families living near each other.

Note that there is a link for the head of most households that will take you to that individual's person page containing detailed information for him or her. If you click the link but your browser stays on this page, it indicates that there is no detailed person page included yet for that individual. An easy way to confirm that this is the case is to check for the person's name in the "Surname Index" - names only appear for people with a person page. Those types of links will gradually disappear as I continue adding people from my database.

Original spelling is retained in the information below - be aware that census records often contain many inaccuracies.
