Hi, Christy, nice to hear from you. In 1870 they are still in Rockfish Twp., Nelson Co., Va. not far from the Balsley families. (in 1860 you will recall they were next door to Samuel Balsley). 1870 Sept. 6, 1870 Page 64 household 475 family 483, Thomas Mc Bride this time listed b 1816 ( his age varies from 1816 to 1821 on the census records)Ellen 38, William 14, Lizzie 23, Nancy 17, josephine 15, George W. 12, Charles R. 11, John 8, James 6, Mary Belle 3, Pauline 1, (born June 1869)and mother Elizabeth 65.
In 1880 they have relocated to Jackson Twp., Buchanan Co., Mo. where Pauline is with them. Pauline is in Ill. where she married in 1887 and where she is on the 1900 census with husband Samuel Hall.
Do you know when Thomas and Ellen died? Also Mary Polly Rippette where did you find her? and do you have dates for her? Hope this is helpful
