Dixon Bartley and Family - census transcriptions 1840-1880

Dixon and Rebecca Smith Bartley are my paternal great-great-grandparents. Others have researched this family but I like to analyze the documents myself and verify the research others have done.

Based on the above information, I put the family together like this:

Dixon was born 1808-1810.
Rebecca was born between June 2 and June 17, 1820. [This is assumes information was given on the date the census was taken, which may not be accurate.]

Their children are:
Eliza, born 1839; moved away, married, or died between 1860 and 1870
Thomas, born 1843; moved away, married or died between 1860 and 1870
Keziah Jane/Jane Keziah, born 1847; living at home in 1880
George W., born 1849; moved away, married, or died between 1860 and 1870
Gillmore/Edward G., born 1851; moved away, married, or died between 1870 and 1880
Elvira, born 1853-1855; married between 1870 and 1880 [Actual birthdate is 12 May 1854.]
Lavina/Levinah, born 1855-1856; married after July 1870
Joseph, born 1858; died between 1860 and 1870
Arra Bell/Arrabell, born 1867; married after 1880

In another post I will combine the information from census records, Dixon's will, and the Golden Wedding article to learn more about Dixon and Rebecca and their family.
