The 1850 census lists a Mary Ankrom living in the household with Jesse Eagon. I am trying to find out who she was. I assume she was a family member, a niece or cousin. She could have been a servant but I have come across the Eagon name in searching for her. I am looking for Mary A or Mary Amanda Ankrom. She married William Gilpin. They lived in Jackson Co., WV. Much of the census info is conflicting for her. It is possible Wm was married 2 or 3 times. I have not been able to find either her parents or his. Gilpins are numerous. He was b. 1807-10 in PA or KY or OH depending on the census. I found a marriage record for a Mary Amanda Ankrom & Wm Gilpin, however, it is dated 1833. She was born in 1820-1, so she would have been 12-3 when she married. I guess that is possible, I know girls married young but that young? I have never found anyone else searching for either of these two people so I'm not hopeful of finding anything but it's worth a try.
