  • The family name appears as Barfoot in her marriage record.  This form varies with the spelling Barefoot.  There are now family lines with each spelling.  We find some examples of the two spellings for one case.  It is possible, even likely, that the spelling should have been Barefoot.  The variable and flighty approach to spelling and the lack of 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 may be a misreading and mistranscription.  In the 1850 census, the enumerator had a very clear and consistent readable hand, and we find her name there as Livie.

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

    The first child in 1960, named P A, appears to match Ann.   The older E Dickinson seems to be Eliza, since Elizabeth was married.  the age is niot right for the age reported for Eliza in 1850, but this is a common problem.  The initials CT don't match any child re[proted in 1950, and the age is not helpful.  Being female, CT is in the place where we would expect Frances (spelled Francis in 11850).  J W matches John and W H was born since 1850.
