      Yes, Jerry I found the death register and this is what I understand. Elizabeth died August 1879.

      The register states it is for people who "Died during the year ENDING May 31, 1880".
      That means census year began June 1, 1879 and ran through May 31, 1880. That is the way the mortality record is always recorded.

      Hope this helps a little
      Jewel

      There is a Federal Death Register that shows her death as Aug 1880. There are several (a few ?) on that single page that also died from TB. The register is on Ancestry if you have access.

      Jerry, you are correct, the enumeration of that census was June 1, 1880. Meaning anyone born AFTER June 1st will NOT be on the 1880 census but if they were living on June 1st they should be on the 1880 census. Now I just looked at that census and yes Ellis is marked as married, but Amanda Hill who lives right above Thomas A. and Nancy Hill, parents of Ellis, is also listed as married and her husband is not at home either. And Caldeen, 6 year old son of Ellis was listed as son of 70 year old Thomas A. and Nancy Hill. So the census taker was rather careless don't you think? Where did you find the death of Elizabeth Hill?

      A number of you have responded to my question about possible places for care of people with consumption in Jackson in the 1880's. In particular, Jewel asked for more specifics.

      Elizabeth Thomas was born in Doran's Cove in 1827 to 1830. Her age varies in different records. She married Ellis G (or Ellis A or Ellis E A) Hill. She died in Aug 1880. I have the family in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 censuses. Ellis is living with his father, Thomas A, in 1880. I can't find Elizabeth but I know she is alive.

      Hill family researchers may have info on one or both. I think the Hill family was around Rocky Springs but I'm not sure. I found a land record (map) for Ellis G indicating that he owned land near where Town Creek runs into the TN River. Where is (was) town Creek? Did a quick look but did not find it.

      I cannot find a cem for Elizabeth or Ellis, either. Anyone know?

      Thanks for the help.

      Hey, we can't look for you or find anyone without their names and info on them.
