    5. [S183] 1850-Franklin Co., KY-Nancy Bryant/George Ransdall (Reliability: 2).
      There is a bit of if then logic connecting William to this family in the 1850 census. William is not to be found in the 1850 census in Missouri. It is documented he was born in Kentucky, therefore Kentucky is the next logical place to look. From the Abel Cemetery records we know William's first wife was Cordelia, the marriage record can be found in Franklin Co., KY. William and his daughter Alice are living with his sister Sally Hackett in 1860, (Cordelia had died). Sally was married to John Hacket in Franklin Co., KY. William's two children's births are also recorded in Franklin Co. The 1850 Franklin Co, KY census record list a William and a Sally of the proper age and birthplace.

      William and Nancy have been a challenge to find in the 1900 census, however I believe this is the correct cenus record. The birth dates, places and children are all correct with known documented data. Will tag this sources as questionable until I can view the original image.
