Jacob and Margaret Good are listed with their large family in the 1850 United States Federal Census records for Violet Township, Fairfield County, Ohio.
Had Romancy lived, she would have been about 14 years old when the 1850 census was taken. Interestingly, there is a Good child, Jacob, listed as 14 years old in the census. And look at the tidy progression of the ages of the Good children: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18.
