Brumfield Census


Brumfield Census  for 1870  Pittsylvania County, Virginia Subdivision North of Dan River
August 30, 1870

Vincent Brumfield     36    Farmer
Mildred      37
William H.  14
Thomas A   12
Isaah   10
John  8
Robbert  6
James  4
Samuel H. 3

The census taker recorded that everyone was born in Virginia.  I don't believe this to be correct.  I think that William, Thomas and Isaah were born in Ohio and John was born on the return trip to Virginia.  Something must have happened to Hubert as he was only two months old in 1860 and there is no mention of him in the 1870 census.

In 1870 they were living only a short distance from Jarratt Dalton.  Jarrat Dalton was the grandfather of Velma Brumfield's husband Ira.

There is no 1890 census.  By the census we find that John Foreman Brumfield was the son of Vincent H. Brumfield and Mildred Brumfield.  According to family lore he was born in a covered wagon on the return trip to Virginia.  He married Eliza Dalton and they had eleven children.  John Foreman Brumfield did not serve in the military.
