I'm trying to pinpoint a time & place of death for Patience and Malachi Raiford. In the 1850 Census for Marshall Co., Miss., she is listed with her 1st husband, Malachi Raiford, and their 3 children, Robert Malachi, Jr., & Susan. I"m guessing Malachi died in Marshall Co.,Miss., sometime after 1850 and before March 21, 1852, when Patience married for the 2nd time, James J. Vickers. James, 55, and Patience, 37 are listed in the 1860 Census for Hempstead Co., Arkansas with, Anah (Hannah) C., 15, (Child Of J.J. from a previous marriage), R. W. 15, Malachi, 13, Susan, 11, F.G. Vickers, 10/ m, Hardy, 6/ m, L.A., 4/ m & William W., 1. In the 1870 Census for Hempstead Co., Arkansas, there is a James Vickers, 60, listed with wife Nancy, 49, Bettie, 24/ f, Sam, 20/ m and M. J. 15/ F. What I would like to know is if this James Vickers is the same person who was married to Patience. If so then it can be assumed, that Patience died sometime before 1870 in Hempstead Co., Ark. Whatever help anyone can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank - you, Ellen
NOTE:in the 1860 Census, Hempstead Co., J. J. is 55, and in the 1870 Census, Hempstead Co., James is 60. Must be a typo.
