With the inclusion of entire family names with the 1850 Census, the value of Census data increased immeasurable. Still like all human records, nothing is etched in stone. If the information is there and matches other research it is a strong corroboration. Moreover it can add new data (we found about 80 new names) and give new leads to research. But mistakes exist and as this is a transcription of the actual Census, some more have been added. The quality of Census data varies from censustaker to censustaker. But this is not a complaint, only an acknowledgement accompanied with an appreciation that the Census was set by our nation's founders as a Constitutional requirement. The Census is a snapshot in time, the people therein forever frozen in that instant. Coupled with other Censuses and marriage information, they are perhaps one of the most powerful genealogy markers available. Indexing of Census material has greatly facilitated finding a family when you don't know their exact location to start.

NOTE: This section is an attempt to explain some of the information found. Most names in BOLD, other than headings, are linked both to the family tree and the actual Census by the [t] and [c] markers following the name.

Earlier Chenoweth genealogies have failed to develpment this Virginia branch and until recently very little of William's descendnats were know. This is changing. William, Jr. is now belived to the William who married Elizabeth Hutchinson and went to Warren Co., OH. Absolom is known to have gone to Clark Co., OH, Issace went first to Pennsylvania and then to Ohio. Very few of these people came into Indiana.
