Personal info

Physical description: 1850 census lists her in the column reserved for "deaf and dumb, idiots or insane, convicts or paupers". She had several small children close in age as well as many older children. Her oldest daughter Teresa did not marry, until she was much older, perhaps because she was major caretaker of her siblings. One can only surmise, as such a diagnosis was made by the census taker, and frequently later census years would indicate there was no problem, nor would a census taker understand postnatal depression.
