Francis[sic] is listed as F. on the 1860 Census

She and W. Young did not appear on the 1850 Census so they may not be children of Watson & Rebecca; however if someone was not at home during the enumerators visit then they might not have been counted so it is hard to say for sure that they are or aren't children of Watson & Rebecca

Notes for W. YOUNG BAKER:

 W. Young and Francis did not appear on the 1850 Census so they may not be children of Watson & Rebecca; however if someone was not at home during the enumerators visit then they might not have been counted so it is hard to say for sure that they are or aren't children of Watson & Rebecca
