Phebe Kendall in 1860

William and Elizabeth Kendall are listed in the 1860 US Census in Willow Springs, Douglas County, Kansas.  Their children from the 1850 US Census in Kentucky are also listed as having been born in Kentucky and have the right names and ages.  The youngest known child is not listed as he will be born in 1861.  Phebe is a candidate for Francis Kendall who married John D. Herring and gave birth to William Francis Marion Herring in 1864.  Note the Kendall family and the Herring family are both located in Douglas County, Kansas during this time.  The Kendall family is in Willow Creek township and the Herring family is in the adjacent Clinton township.

It is interesting to note that this family moved from Kentucky to Kansas and appears to have moved back for the duration of the Civil War, moving back to Kansas afterwards.
