DIED after the 1850 census age 19

Mar.: Celia Mitchell

Margaret age:6 VA

Malinda age:4
1860 census she was still living with Mom/Dad.

Sarah Ann age:2
Mar.:Bysom Horton Hash

(I checked the neighborhood for the Haga Family and the Hash family but they were not living nearby.
However, there is a TAYLOR FAMILY
just around the corner about 8 farms.)

1850 census the HAGA FAMILY
Dist. #19 Grayson Co, Virginia
living with them is Charles Cole age:43 and 6 young kids.
next door to them is the GRUBB family, Jacob whom Henry's sister married.

1860 census Bridle Creek, Grayson, Virginia
Amazing on page 41 IS: The HASH FAMILY whom Sarah Ann married into and next door to them IS
HEAD: JACOB HAGA age:47 farmer VA
Celia A. age:33 VA
Edith age:17 VA
Harriet age:15 VA
Noah age:13 Va
Clementine age:11 VA
Welden W. age:9 VA
Rosamond age:7 VA
Jacob M. age:5 VA

2 doors down from the Haga FAMILY is the
HEAD: Jacob/Sarah
Martha-Stephen-Peggy-Malinda-Sarah Ann-
Daniel W. Chadwick Rimer age:10
(a new son since the 1850 census was taken)
ALSO, the older son Isaac, has moved back with his folks because according to Blanche Keating-Collie,
Isaac' wife died in or right after childbirth of their son.

The 1860 censuses DO NOT LIST Elizabeth Rimer with her family AND Henry HAGA is not listed on any census.???
Together or apart? So maybe they married by 1860, depending on which census you are looking at they were both at least 20+ years old.

Muster cards for 3rd. Corp Henry Haga
12 pages
Enlisted: 28 June 1861 at Fox Creek, Grayson Co Va
as Pvt. into Co.D 51st Reg't Virginia Infantry
Promoted to 4th Corp transferred to Co. I
then 3rd Corp Oct. 1/62. His last clothing receipt was dated Sept. 17 1864. No MUSTER-OUT card included.

Circa 1867 there was a marriage, I'm thinkin' because Elizabeth had their first child William L. 1868.
However I can not pull a marriage record out...
OK, BUT some one thinks that Henry/Elizabeth named
a FIRST SON: William Henry HAGA born 1859
answers the question as to what year they probably married
1858 prior to the first William to be born
and then their next child born 1868 they also named William......nice.

1870 census Wilson Creek, Grayson Co. Virginia P.O. Mouth of Wilson
HEAD: Henry Haga age:29 farm Laborer VA
Elizabeth age:29 keep house VA
Wm.L age:2 Va
John H. age:6/12 Va
If they had had a son William Henry in 1859 wouldn't he only be 11 years old and should be listed here with his 2 younger brothers.

(and living 2 doors down IS:
The HASH Family
Head:Joseph age:68/Phena age:47
Leonard 21-Benj.19-Linsey 18-James 16-Enoch-Carolina-Sarah Ann age 9-America
(This is the family I think Sarah Ann married into???
