I'm continuing work on the 1840 census transcriptions for Missouri at
http://ancestraldata.com/ahnentafel/256/1840-MO.html

Take a look at this (the name are, of course, my guesses). They wre living
next to the Ballingers:

Randolph County - Series: M704 Roll: 229
p 283 William Cooley
        210001-00001
        2 males 0-4 William Cooley (c1835-)
        1 male 5-9 James Cooley (c1833-)
        1 male 30-39 William Cooley
        1 female 20-29 Sarah J Ballinger (2nd wife)

And compare to this:

--quote--

1850 > MISSOURI > MACON > 52-DIST
Series: M432 Roll: 405 Page: 179

William Cooley 47 SC
Sarah J " 33 SC
James " 17 MO
William " 15 MO
Martha " 8 MO
Jonathan " 5 MO
Casseldana " 3 MO
Sarah J " 6/12 MO

Living next door is John Ballenger, 67, born VA.

William married Sarah Nallinger 1839, his second wife.

I have this William placed as a son of James, but he is too old to have
been James's son. The only other place he fits is as a son of Perrin,
which provides a tad more sense to the early census records (1800 and
1810) for him.

But, for Perrin, I have the William born 1819 who married Andrews. Iyt's
my contention, now, that -he- was James's son.

Any thoughts?
