    According to Daniel's father's ARW Pension application S15197 dated 4 M ar 1833, the family came to Mercer Co., Ky in 1794 (when Daniel was 3) f rom South Carolina, after having been married and lived in Bedford, Ga.

    ================================================================

    ================================================================
    1840 Census, Washington Co., Ky., p.110: Daniel Cary Sr. (married 28 y ears)

    1 male 5-10 (unknown, possibly Daniel in 1850), 1 male 15-20 (unknown, p ossibly John in 1850), 1 female 5-10 (unknown, possibly Mary in 1850), 1 f emale 10-15 (unknown, possibly Nancy in 1850 or Margaret), 1 female 40- 50 (Nancy), 1 male 40-50 (Daniel)
    ================================================================
    1850 Census, Mercer Co., Ky., p.341: Daniel Carey (married 38 years)

    Carey, Daniel 60 m farmer b.Georgia
    Nancy 60 f Kentucky
    Nancy 18 f "
    Daniel 19 m "
    John 30 m farmer "
    Mary 14 f "
    Elizabeth 11 f "

    *** Note: who are Nancy, Daniel, John, Mary, and Elizabeth? This John c ould not be their son, as their son John died before 1846, at the age o f 27. He had been married to Polly Pinkston in 1838 (only 12 years pre vious to this census), so it's unlikely that the others in this census w ould be John's orphans, except maybe Elizabeth.

    I can only assume at this time that they had a son, older than their da ughter Elizabeth, whose children they raised from the 1830's on.
