  • The family name appears as Barfoot in her marriage record.  This formvaries with the spelling Barefoot.  There are now family lines witheach spelling.  We find some examples of the two spellings for onecase.  It is possible, even likely, that the spelling should have beenBarefoot.  The variable and flighty approach to spelling and the lackof set forms for spelling in that era would allow that.

    The transcription of the record also has her first name as Sivel,which doe snot make sense.  There is no image available and that maybe a misreading and mistranscription.  In the 1850 census, theenumerator had a very clear and consistent readable hand, and we findher name there as Livie.

    Livie died some time before the 1860 census, when C Dickinson isreported with children in the home matching those in the 1850enumeration.  Since the last child was born in about 1853, we can sayLivie died after that time.

    The first child in 1960, named P A, appears to match Ann.   The olderE Dickinson seems to be Eliza, since Elizabeth was married.  the ageis niot right for the age reported for Eliza in 1850, but this is acommon problem.  The initials CT don't match any child re[proted in1950, and the age is not helpful.  Being female, CT is in the placewhere we would expect Frances (spelled Francis in 11850).  J W matchesJohn and W H was born since 1850.
