The 1810 Census & Mary Vincent of Halifax, NC

Howell/Vincent-Vinson
Census Sunday

Once I learned that Philip died between 1805 and 1808 (See Article) and that his wife’s name was Mary, it became easy to find Mary in the 1810 Census and gain a glimpse of what her household looked like. And sure enough, her household is as we might expect.

Mary Vincent of Halifax, NC during the 1810 Census:  – – 1 1 – | – – 2 – 1  | – 1

Mary Vincent  – – 1 1 – | – – 2 – 1 | – 1

Males

  • 1 Male 16-26             Probably Peter, born between 1784 and 1794.
  • 1 male 26-45             Probably Jarrett, born between 1774 and 1784 (Dec 1778)

Females

  • 2 Females 16-26      Probably Child 5 & Child 6 of Philip Vincent (Names still unknown)
  • 1 Female over 45     Mary

Mary’s son, Burkett Vincent, shows in the 1810 Census with his own household.

That leaves one boy born between 1781 and 1784 whose name I still don’t know.

Also, there is one more female, born between 1784 and 1790, whose name we don’t know. She might have been married or possibly passed between 1800 and 1810.
