Sophia Whitehead1

b. 17 March 1815
Birth*17 March 1815Sophia Whitehead was born on 17 March 1815 in Rochdale, Lancashire, England.1
Marriage*She married Reuben Hull Spicer, son of John Spicer and Jerushia Carter.
Census 18509 October 1850Sophia and Reuben H. Spicer appeared on the 1850 census taken on 9 October 1850 in Township 14 N R 1 W, Mercer County, Illinois. The census taker's accuracy leaves much to be desired, and the record's transcription is also questionable. The record indicates that the Spicer's real estate holdings were valued at $5,000 and they had five children in their household. "Alivica" was enumerated as age 9 although Sarah Amelia was actually 12 and two years older than her sister, Augusta spelled "Autusta", who was recorded as 10. The 9-year-old Edgar Lewis was not enumerated with the family. Talbot, transcribed as "Salbot" was 7 and the two youngest children, Charles F. and Lucy were 5 and 2 respectively.2
Census 1860*25 June 1860Sophia and Reuben H. Spicer appeared on the 1860 census taken on 25 June 1860 in Township 14 N 1 W (Oxford Post Office), Mercer County, Illinois. The values of the Spicer's real estate and personal estate in 1860 were $20,000 and $2,000 respectively and they had ten children in their household. Sarah was 21 and working as a School Teacher, as was her sister Augusta who was 19. All of the other children, with the exception of the two youngest, were attending school. Lewis was 17, Talbot, recorded as "Albert" was 15, Charles-13, Lucy-11, Reuben-9, Frank-6, "Minna May"-3 and Mary was recorded as 5 months.3
