William L. Townsend

M, b. circa 1811
     William L. Townsend was born circa 1811 at Marlboro, South Carolina, United States.1 He was the son of Benjamin Townsend and Ester (--?--). William L. Townsend married Mary (--?--) circa 1840.1
     Biography of William L. Townsend:
William L. Townsend appears in the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 censuses of Marlboro County, South Carolina. He has a family in 1850 but is living without family in the last three of those censuses. He also gives his age fairly consistently as being born about 1810. We believe this is the same person in all four censuses as no other William Townsend’s are found in those years in Marlboro County. We also believe he is the son of Benjamin Townsend (1788-1860) as he fits the position of a son born about 1810 in the household of Benjamin Townsend in the 1810 census. Also in 1880 he is living by himself next door to Franklin Townsend (1837- ) who is a grandson of Benjamin, thus inferring that William L. could be Franklin’s Uncle.

     Biography of Josiah Elford Townsend:
Josiah Elford Townsend is first found listed as an orphan winning land with Frances Townsend, widow, from McIntosh County Georgia in the 1821 Georgia Land Lottery.

He is next found in the 1840 Census of McIntosh County, Georgia (p. 83) living with a female age 20-30, undoubtedly his wife, Sarah Oliver. Sophia Oliver family is living nearby. He is next found in the 1850 Census of McIntosh County, Georgia with his wife, Sarah. By 1860 he had removed to Jacksonville, Florida appearing in that census (p. 249) with wife, Sarah A. and a Ellen Townsend age 30. We do not know who Ellen is but doubt she is a daughter.

By 1870 Josiah has moved to Sanderson, Baker County, Florida where he is Clerk of Court and listed on p. 218 of that census. His wife, Sarah A., mother in law, Sophia Oliver age 72 and twins, Peter and James Townsend age 17 are enumerated with him. He, nor any other members of his family, were found in the 1880 Census.
