  • Notes 
    • It was noted by the compiler that all of the children in the censusrecords were born in Indiana. Taking the corresponding birth dates onthe census records from around c.1840 to c.1860 and comparing them tothe residence of Leonard & Celina during those years it must be thatall of the children were born in Carr Township, Jackson County,Indiana. Also, Celina was born in Indiana as well according to thecensus records, so it would be appropriate to also assert that Celinaand Leonard were probably married in Indiana as well. Of course, moreresearch is required on the family, and with all genealogy it is awork in progress. SLJuhl, Compiler.

      On the 12 August 1850 Federal Census for Carr Township, JacksonCounty, Indiana--a Richard Yauncey (dwelling 121/123) was living nextdoor to Leonard C. Alsup (dwelling 122/124) . In Richard Yauncey'shouse hold was probably a grandson of about two years old, RichardReynolds, b. IN. William Junior Reynolds was married to NancyYauncey. William Junior Reynolds sister Elizabeth was married toLeonard C. Alsup's brother, Daniel Alsup. The family connections tothe Reynolds & Allsup Families are obvious by following RichardReynolds, grandson of the Yauncey's in the census records.

      It was also noted in the census records the surname changes over theyears from Allsup to Alsup.
