Richard & Elizabeth WILLIAMS are Susan's parents.  Obviously, "Henry" should be "Harvey."  M.A. is too old to be Harvey's child is she Harvey's sister?  Listed three lines from James Henry THOMPSON & Angeline THAXTON, who are next to Angeline's parents, Benjamin D. THAXTON & Malinda L. GAULDING, who are two households from Susan's uncle, Royal T. WILLIAMS & Delilah Sampson GAULDING, brother of her father, Richard.  UPDATE (14 Nov 2016):  an email from Doreen McGowan indicates, "M.A.," is Missouri Ann Elizabeth BELCHER, born 8 Jan 1841, so the "19" in the census should be "9."

4.  1860 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find any of them, except for Missouri and Martha.
