July 5th 1831 Margaret Hunter
Margaret Hunter is listed in the 1830 census as being head of the household. She was between 40 and 49 at the time of the census and had a 10 to 14 year old female living with her. By the time the 1840 census came around, she was still head of the household and listed as age 50-59. She also had a 20-29 year old female (perhaps the same from the previous census) as well as a female under the age of 5.
I wish I could find out more about Margaret Hunter. Was she a widow or did she have a child out of wedlock? Is the female under 5 in 1840 a granddaughter?
