    • I am unable to find any census record for any of this family in the 1860 census. That being said, I do find Henry, with whom Leovisa lived, in 1870 without her. Unless she is living with other family in 1860 or 1870, I believe that she died between 1855 and 1860. I also believe that this is around the time that Henry decides to move. He ends up in Louisiana near some of his sister's family.
