Shared note

In the 1850 US Federal Census for Saluda, Jefferson, Indiana, 69-year-old Virginia-born Melson Largent is a farmer who owns $600 worth of real estate. He and his second wife 58-year-old Kentucky-born Elizabeth [maiden name unknown] Largent are recorded on the same census page as Melson's 37-year-old Indiana-born son, Henry, and Henry's family. Henry is a farmer with no real estate of value. Henry and his 35-year-old Kentucky-born wife, Julia [Osborne] Largent have in their household their Indiana-born children, 13-year-old Elvira, 11-year-old Nelson [sic Melson], 9-year-old Margarette [sic], 7-year-old Elizabeth, 5-year-old John, 3-year-old Abram, and one-year-old Peter. Elvira, Melson, Margarette and Elizabeth have attended school in the past year.
