Shared note: 1850 USA Federal Census Transcription - Justus ROOT - household

Reference: HF: 6 and 7, LN: 31/40, pg 651, enumerated by marshall William F Banning Location: Eaton, Madison Co, New York, USA Note: The enumerator assigned a separate household to Justus' and Sarah's children as they are recorded in HF: 6 and all of their children recorded in HF: 7 with son Aurora. It appears that Aurora and Margaret are indeed another family, with perhaps Ervin as their son because Sarah would have been 49yo at the time of his birth. Some researchers attribute some of these individuals to a James and Elizabeth "Betsey" Scripture ROOT family instead of Justus and Sarah, especially Sarah Larancy Root Tooke.
