     Samuel Townsend was born circa 1794 at Marlboro, South Carolina, United States.1 He was the son of Rhoda Townsend. Samuel Townsend married Sarah Sweeney circa 1815. Samuel Townsend married Edia (--?--) circa 1820 at Marlboro, South Carolina, United States. Samuel Townsend died before 1860 at Madison, Florida, United States.
     Biography of Samuel Townsend:
Samuel Townsend and his growing family are enumerated in the 1820, 1830, 1840 census of Marlboro County South Carolina. The 1820 census suggests he had 2 sons and 2 daughters born in the 1815 to 1820 period. We have identified one of the daughters as Rhoda Ann. The other three siblings are not identified and are shown below as unnamed sons and daughters. There is an older female age 45+ enumerated with Samuel in the 1820 Census. This older female is believed to be Samuel's mother, Rhoda. That census also suggests that Samuel had two wives as there are no other females of Samuel's age enumerated suggesting that Samuel's first wife (other researchers have identified her as Sarah Sweeney) died by 1820. By 1830, Samuel has 4 more male children and 2 more female children. By the 1840 census he has two more female children. We believe shortly after 1820 census, Samuel married his second wife, Edia. The unnamed daughters and sons listed below were developed based on these earlier census records.
Samuel remained in Marlboro County, South Carolina much of his life. However in the early 1840's he removed with his family to Madison County Florida where he was enumerated in the 1850 census of that county.
