      Madison (3, M, KY)
      Susan L. (7 mos, F, KY)

      Note that George Madison is listed simply as Madison in this census, and it appears that Susan's name is spelled Sausan L. There is also what appears to be small marks in the column marked "Value of Real Estate Owned" next to William S. Venable's name. I don't know if this means the same amount as the person above him, or simply that there wasn't any real estate for this gentleman. Also, age for William S. would mean that he was born in approximately 1800, not 1804.

  • Notes 
    • (Research):Listed in the Adjutant General's Report with James M Venable: Samuel Venable. Because the enrollment dates are the same, I am assuming that this is Samuel, James' brother. Also listed in the Report: James T. Woods and Jospeh H. Woods. There are mentions of Joseph Woods having property directly next to William S. Venable's property in Fluvanna Co. Deed records. James T. Woods has the same enrollment date as both of the Venables.
    • (Medical):On his pension application dated 25 Aug 1925, James reported having heart trouble, rheumatism, dizziness and partial blindness.
