Some Life Events of Interest

Lydia, twin sister of James, appears not to have been married as of May 5th, 1835 when she signed a document (reprinted in the Vanderpool Newsletter 9.4, page 613) concerning her father, John Vanderpool's estate.

This document found in "For Deed Holland Vanderpool", Book B, Page 192, was originally signed by her brothers, Winant, Meadors, Kinman, and John and her two sisters and their husbands, Polly and Willis Elliott and Delilah and James R. Walker on April 02, 1832. It gave brother Holland their share of the land left in the estate of father, John Vanderpool for the sum of $66.66. Lydia Vanderpool has her "mark" on the paper but is not mentioned in the document and it is dated May 05, 1835. The reason for this signing at a later date, and her part in the inheritance is unkown.1

Residences and Censuses

She was probably the female age 20 to 30 listed in the household of her husband, James William Neel, in the 1840 Federal Census of Crooked River Town, Ray Co., Missouri.6

Utah became a U.S. territory in September of 1850. Its federal census took two months to complete and was not begun until April of 1851. Therefore, the “1850” U.S. Census for Utah Territory is actually an 1851 enumeration, James, children and Mary his ward.
