Hello,
My name is Tom Smith. Cassie Ann Warren is an ancestor of my wife. I have done some research on this line. I found something of interest in the 1850 census. The info you reference above was taken by the census taker on December 11, 1850. I found (in completely different writing) another entry for the 1850 census (also Franklin County, Al, but different district) dated October 6, 1850.
Jerry Warren 72 Va.
Nancy 47 Ga
John 22 Al
Chas 15 Al
Calfernia Al 12
Casse A 10 Al
Elizabeth 6 Al
And a farmhand John Therwodd
(no Marion)

I believe they are the same family and moved between the two census takers. What is your opinion?

Thanks Tom

Tom, I had to laugh when I read this post! Yes, the family was enumerated twice in 1850. I suspect Jeremiah was having fun with the enumerator. Notice the different ages and places of birth?

I tried tracking down John Sherwood, whose middle initial was "H." It is possible he was related, because my ancestor was John H. WARREN, Jeremiah's oldest known son. Nowhere does John's middle name get spelled out in any historical document I have found. Probably one of those little mysteries that will never be solved.

In 1999, I traveled to Alabama and met descendants of Charles Jackson. I have also been in contact with descendants of Marion.

I would like to share data and compare family history. Please contact me at capndad<at>gmail<dot>com.
