1860 US Census - Henry Emery

Here is the 1860 US Census for my great great great great grandfather Henry Emery and his second wife, Hannah (Gaffney).   It's difficult to read, but the other members of the household were James H,  William P, Jason Rust, Catherine, all children of Henry and his first wife, Olive (Jacobs).

The three Emery's listed between James H and William P are illegible, though one looks like Amanda, who may have been a wife of one of the children (as I have not come across an Amanda born to Henry and Olive), the other two are difficult to figure out as the ages don't match up to what I have for Henry's children.

James H is listed as a teacher, though Frederic B. Emery wrote in his book "Conrad Emery and His Descendants", that James was a physician.

The Emery family was living in the town of Weller, Henry County, Illinois, having moved from Canton in Fuller County, Illinois, sometime after the 1850 Census.
