More Brumfield Information
Children of Vincent and Millie Brumfield
William Henry Brumfield Age: 4
Thomas A. Brumfield Age: 3
Isaiah Jake Brumfield Age: 2
Herbert Brumfield Age: 2 months
The above children were born in Ohio.
I found them in the 1860 census.
In the 1870 census we find William Henry, Thomas A, Isaiah Jake, but there is no mention of Herbert.
The next child in the 1870 census is:
John Foreman Brumfield Age: 8
Robert: Age: 6
James G Age: 4
Samuel H. Age: 3
One of the family stories that I have heard is that John Foreman was born in a covered wagon on their way back to Virginia. So if he is 8 in the 1870 census, then they must have returned around 1862.
In the 1880 census, William Henry, Thomas A and Isaiah are no longer living in the household. At this time I do not know whether they have died or moved. I hope to know more later.
The following children are added in this census.
Virginia Frances Age: 9
Sarah Alice Age: 8
Martha E Age: 6
Manta Age: 2
Now I don't know about the name Manta, but that is what it looks like in the census and that is how they spelled it also. Manta is a son.
There is no 1890 census so for 20 years there is no record. In the 1900 census all the above children are no longer in the household with Vincent and Millie and there is a George Walton age 21. Also Millie states in the census that she has had fourteen children, but only nine survived. I found names for thirteen children, but that twenty year gap could have had one more at some time.
So to recap here are the following children I have found in the 1860,1870,1880 and 1900 census.
