Jane Usher 33
John Bumpus 4
The Jane Usher listed with this family is a mystery. She was married to an Unknown Bumpus
and had a son John listed as 4 years old in 1870. Although the ages are different I believe
this to be the same Jane Usher below that is listed above with the name Elizabeth J. Usher,
in the census both women list their birthplace as Tennessee.
