6.  1850 Census Index/Microfilm (online at GenealogyLibrary.com):  District 2, Christian Co., KY, p. 412A, 763/810, enumerated 10 Oct 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
George Myres 60 M Farmer 1500 Pennsylvania
Mary P    " 60 F     Virginia
Susan A    " 29 F     Kentucky

Anna P      " 24 F        "
Lucy D     " 21 F        "
George    " 18 M Farmer      "
Sterling Eaton 21 M Farmer   Tennessee
Who is Mary?!  If the birthdates above are correct, Susan and Elizabeth are fibbing about their ages.  Sterling EATON later married Anna.

9.  Email from Beth Bond (21 May 2001):
Nancy was indeed a daughter of John Boisseau and Nancy Carter.  Her parents were born in Virginia but moved to Kentucky and stayed there until they died... Nancy was a descendant of the Rev. James Boisseau who escaped from France as he was one of the Huguenots who left after the Edict of Nantes fell, he went to England for awhile with one of his brothers, and then they departed on separate ships for Virginia.  His brother's ship ran a bit offcourse it is said and ended up in S.C...

John Boisseau, mentioned above, was a brother to 2 of my direct ancestors, Benjamin and Susanna Boisseau, they were all children of James Boisseau and his wife, Anner Fitzpatrick of Va.
