1820 Pulaski County Census image and 1830 extract
In re: to determine age of log house John Colyer purchased in 1842 from Langdon's that is still standing in 2011: Shows that John Langdon was living in house in 1820, next to the same neighbors his widow Susannah lives next to in 1830 census. The 1810 census was, I have read, destroyed in war of 1812 and the images of the 1810 census available are index images by last name, which are not helpful in locating where people lived by reference to neighbors since in lastname order, not in order as taken. Susannah Langdon sells 200 acre farm to John Colyer in 1842. Therefore, house that is on the same 200 acre farm at Pittman creek in 2011, whose back faces the 1824-1835 road (ie house built before road thus house faces creek) was most likely built in 1806, the year that John John Langdon has a South of Green River Legislative Act of 1795 Land Grant per court records. These Grants required property settlement and improvement w/ cabin or crops. The Grant was for 720 acres. George B. Cooper (neighbor in census of 1820-1830 also got land grant in 1805.
