    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.133

      When I first saw the 1850 census for the household of Jeptha Harrington in Chambers Co., AL, where Jeptha, whose wife Nancy (Darwin) Harrington had died March 1847, was listed on the census only with his granddaughter, Jane Northrop, aged 17, I thought that Jane must have been orphaned but in fact it was only her father, Amos Northrop, who had died some time after Jane was born, and Jane herself was now helping her grandfather at his home, in the period before Jeptha remarried Mrs. Harriet E. Boseman.

      Close by to Jeptha were both the families of his son, William Darwin Harrington, and his daughter, Elizabeth, the mother of Jane, now married to George Washington McGinty, who was known as Washington McGinty by the family.

      Washington was a successful farmer and he and Elizabeth are listed together with their four children on both the 1850 & 1860 census in Chambers Co., AL. However by 1870, they were living apart as Elizabeth was shown living with her eldest son, Pinckney McGinty, who was a dentist. Washington now aged 84, is listed as head of household, living with his daughter, Narcissa Carpenter, and her two children, Elizabeth and William. Narcissa, whose mother was Naomi McGinty, had been widowed the previous year 1869, when her husband Franklin Carpenter had died.
