    Notes 
    • (1) A household headed by Luke HALE is listed in the 1840 census of District 5, Jackson County, TN.

      Listed in Luke's household are 2 free white males under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 2 free white females between 5 and 10 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Assuming that Luke is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that Luke's wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Luke's household are children of Luke and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 2 sons (which sons would have been born between 1835 and 1840, according to the 1840 census) and 2 daughters (which daughters would have been born between 1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census).

      (2) A household headed by Luke HALL is listed in the 1850 census of District 17, Jackson County, TN, near a household headed by George W. HALL. [The compiler believes that Luke's surname was really HALE or HAIL, and George W.'s surname was really HALE.]

      Luke is listed in the 1850 census as a farmer who was then 40 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1810. His birthplace is not listed in the 1850 census.

      Listed with Luke is his wife, Margaret, who was then 39 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1811. According to the 1850 census, she was born in KY. According to the 1850 census, she could neither read nor write.

      Also listed with Luke is son, Andrew J., who was then 18 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1832. According to the 1850 census, he was apparently born in "IA," although the census enumerator's handwriting is not clear in this regard. [Note by compiler: The U.S. Postal Service did not institute its two-letter state postal codes until 1963, so the abbreviation "IA," as used in the 1850 census, could have referred to Indiana or Iowa. Of these two states, Indiana was more likely to have been Andrew J.'s birthplace, since pioneer settlement in Iowa had not yet begun in earnest as of 1832. However, according to later records, Alexander J. was born in Tennessee.]

      Also listed with Luke is his son, George W., who was then 15 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1835. According to the 1850 census, he was born in TN.

      Also listed with Luke is his daughter, Linda, who was then 12 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1838. According to the 1850 census, he was born in TN.

      Also listed with Luke is his daughter, Sarah, who was then 10 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1840. Her birthplace is not listed in the 1850 census.

      Also listed with Luke is his daughter, Nancy, who was then 8 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1842. Her birthplace is not listed in the 1850 census.

      Also listed with Luke is his daughter, Mary, who was then 6 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1844. Her birthplace is not listed in the 1850 census.

      Also listed with Luke is his daughter, Margaret, who was then 4 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1846. Her birthplace is not listed in the 1850 census.

      About U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885:

      Part of the U.S. Federal Censuses from 1850-1880 included a mortality schedule enumerating the individuals who had died in the previous year. Because each of the censuses from 1850-1880 began on June 1, "previous year" refers to the 12 months preceding June 1, or June 1 (of the previous year) to May 31 (of the census year).
