* probably second marriage for one or both partners

Household 787, Wiley and Lydia NASH. There is a Davie County marriage bond for Lydia SAIN and Wylie B. NASH on April 6, 1843. However, Tony Collier reports that a Harbin family Bible records this marriage as 14 April 1845, and also has an entry stating that Lydia Nash, wife of W.B. Nash, was born in 1810 and died in January 1844, inconsistent with this Lydia who is age 45 and still alive in 1850.
Thanks to Virginia Rizor Bean for the answer to this one: Wiley B. Nash m. 1. his cousin Nancy Nash 14 Feb 1820 Mecklenburg Co. VA
He married 2. Lydia Harbin 4/14/1845, daughter of Walter Harbin and Easter Etchison and widow of Jacob Sain.
He married 3. Lydia Poole 10/4/1849 Rowan Co. NC
Thus the Lydia listed on the 1850 Davie County Census is his 3rd wife Lydia Poole, not Lydia Harbin.

Household 703, listed in the original census as Samuel SAYLOR. Tony Collier and I think that this is probably an error, and should be Samuel Wells NAYLOR, who married Mehetabel ROSE in 1831.
