    Two additional children are memtioned in Jemima's memorial on Find aGrave.  After Penina is Lucinda, and the last-named child is DrWilliam Wilshire Philpot.  Lucinda does not appear in the 1860 census,but is in the 1870 census as 15 years old.  Where was she in 1860?  Itmight be another name for one of the other chidlren, but there is noother girl child close to the age of Lucinda.

    The Ancestry scan of the 1860 census is incomplete, cutting off mostthe right section of the sheet from the birth state field to the rightedge of the sheet.  I don't know which James Philpot this is workingon the farm.

    Elizabeth appears in the Find-a-Grave list below, as well as Sarah.In the 1860 census she is reported as 17 yeas old, but the nameElizabeth does not appear in the 1850 census for the family.  MaybeSarah is reported in 1860, with an age matching Elizabeth in 1860.WQith what we now now, this leads to the tentative conclusion thatSarah and Elizabeth are the same child, even though both lists appearin the Find-a-Grave list.

    In the 1870 census record, I cannot identify the child reported asJane, age 24 here.  There is no child matching her in any previouscensuses or family lists of Jesse and Jemima's children.
