William A. Maxwell (b. ca. 1800) and family

Three female children are enumerated in 1830, but only one female child is enumerated in 1840. Of these three, one is known to be Margaret; the other two are, as yet, unidentified. The older "unknown" daughter was age 5-10 in 1830. Thus, if she was alive in 1840, she would have been age 15-20. Similarly, the younger "unknown" daughter was age 0-5 in 1830, so she would have been 10-15 in 1840. The most likely fate of these two girls is that they died before reaching adulthood. It's possible the older daughter got married, but in the history of this family, research has uncovered no child names other than those enumerated in 1850 and beyond.
