      This household shows 2 adults between 20 and 30 years old (William S. and his wife Sarah) with 2 children under the age of 5 (John, who would have been an infant, and an unknown girl child that does not show up on the following federal census.) There is also a white woman between 70 and 80 years of age, that was probably the mother to either Sarah or William. In addition to the 5 whites, there were 12 slaves living in the household.

      William is living next door to Richard H. Venable (a brother?). Also on this page: George W. Richardson, Abraham Venable Jr., and Sarah Kent.

    • William S. (50, M, Shoemaker, VA)
      Sarah W. (49, F, VA)
      John (20, M, Laborer, VA)
      Benjamin (17,M, Laborer, VA, attended school within last yr)
      William (14, M, VA, attended school within last yr)
      Virginia (10, F, KY, attended school within last yr)
      James E. (8, M, KY)
      Samuel (6, M, KY)
      Madison (3, M, KY)
      Susan L. (7 mos, F, KY)

      Note that George Madison is listed simply as Madison in this census, and it appears that Susan's name is spelled Sausan L. There is also what appears to be small marks in the column marked "Value of Real Estate Owned" next to William S. Venable's name. I don't know if this means the same amount as the person above him, or simply that there wasn't any real estate for this gentleman. Also, age for William S. would mean that he was born in approximately 1800, not 1804.

    • There are 3 John Venables listed in the entire 1860 census that were born in VA and are of a comparable age. They are:

      John Venable living in Scott, VA is given as being 25 years old.
      John Venable living in Western District of Washington Co., VA - 29 yrs old.
      John Venable living in Prince Edward, VA aged 28 years old.

      I have no way of telling at this time which John is the son of William S. and Sarah Venable.
