1 - Male under 10 ‎(Would be George Wallace, 2)‎
1 - Male of 10 and under 18 ‎( Would be David M.,16)‎
1 - Male 45 years and upward ‎(Would be Charles, 57)‎
2 - Females of 10 and under 18 ‎(Would be Elizabeth Jane, 11 & Mary Eugenia, 9)‎
1 - Female 45 years and upwards ‎(Would be Jane, 46)‎
6 - Number of free whites that can read and write

We had assumed Jane could not read or write because on an earlier document she had signed with an X. Perhaps somewhere between 1827 and 1856 she learned. Or this could be an error on the enumerators part as is the case with Mary Eugenia's age. She was 9 not 10.
Between the 1850 and 1856 census records we can see one of the male children seems to be missing this would be Montezuma. On the 1850 census we have John Milton we know he left for California in 1850. David M. who is accounted for in both census's. Charles William who died in 1853 at age 17. George Wallace was born in 1854 and we have an 1859 diary of John Milton's which shows he received word of George Wallaces death in November of 1859. George died in October. It took a month for the letter to catch up to John Milton a traveling preacher in California. So this leaves the missing male as Montezuma. He is listed on the 1850 census as 4 months old. Elizabeth Jane said he had died 1 June 1857. She must have the year of his death incorrect. I have changed his date of death to "before 1857." This date covers that he may have died in 1856 before the census was taken and after his birth in 1850. -Jane 13 May 2008
