2.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #12 of 16 indexed "Frances"):  Christmasville P.O., Civil District No. 3, Carroll Co., TN, Roll M653_1243, p. 35B, PN 68, 434/429, enumerated 19 Jul 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Francis Glover 28 M   Farm Tenant   400 Ten
Louisa     " 20 F         "
William H  "  4 M         "
Amanda V   " 5/12 F         "
Clemantine Barnes? 21 F   Indwelling?     "
This enumerator's handwriting was a misery, in addition to the record being badly faded.  Listed next to David PATTON (æ 39, b. AL, wife Nancy, æ 35, b. TN) and four households from Francis's father, George GLOVER.  In the 1850 census, David PATTON is D.H. PATTEN (æ 30, b. AL, wife Nancy, æ 25, b. TN) in District No. 11, Weakley Co., TN (p. 373A).  I had hoped to find Louisa living with or near David in 1850, but no such luck.
