[Source of green information above is from Claudine Harding GGGG Granddaughter of Rebecca Love Jackson (Eleanor's sister) in e-mails dated 20 and 21, February 2009 to Susan L. Snyder. The source of some of this information was a declaration for pension made in 1850 by Eleanor's brother, Robert. When Robert wrote his letter, Eleanor, Samuel, Charles, Rebecca, and William were alive; that documents that all of them died after 1850.

John, Fanny, and Elizabeth were not mentioned in Robert's declaration, but Winford signed her permission for Fanny & Elizabeth to get married and she stated that she was their mother. There is some confusion as to whether John, Fanny, and Elizabeth were really siblings of Eleanor since Eleanor's father was admitted to the Williamsburg Insane Assylum on 28 December 1803 and was in the hospital until his death circa 1812. John, Fanny, and Elizabeth were born during his hospital stay. ]


Miscellaneous: On the 1840 United States Federal Census of Lewis County, Virginia, Eleanor's husband, Henry, was listed as the head of his family. Living with him were two males 20 and under 30. He was listed as 50 and under 60. There was one female under 5, one 20 but under 30, and one 40 and under 50. The later was probably Eleanor.

Henry and Eleanor had three children: Edward Jackson (#29), William L., and Mary Cecelia. Click on The Pioneer -1976 to read more about the family. [Note: Claudine Harding (GGGG Granddaughter of Rebecca Love and Edward H. Jackson) suspects that Edward Jackson Colerider was named after his uncle, Edward H. Jackson].

In the 1860 Census of Buckhannon, Upshur, Virginia, enumerated on the 30th day of June, there were 2 people living in Henry Colerider's home: Henry Colerider: 79, (old and infirmed) and Eleanor: 71 (wife). (Note: if 71 is her correct age, then her birth year would have been 1789, not 1798. If the 1798 date is correct, then she was 63 years old in 1860.) The census states that Henry was born in Maryland, Eleanor in Virginia. The value of his real estate was $200 and his personal estate: $500. [Susan Snyder's note : Above their names on the census is one of his sons, Edward Jackson Colerider and his family.)

Eleanor's age is either incorrect on this census or it is incorrect on the 1860 census or it is incorrect on both. Both censuses list her as 71 years of age.]
