Interesting facts
g The 1850 U.S. Census lists the following living in Levi's and Polly's home in Huston Township, Clearfield County, Pa: Levi Place, 36 years old; Polly (Moorhouse), 31; Samuel, 12; Martha, 8; Hezekiah, 6; Eliza J., 4; Amelia, 3; Dulsena, 1.
g Levi and Polly allegedly are descended from French Hugenouts, but this appears to be more of a family legend than fact.
