Household in 1850
1. Considering the floor plan of the house, where do you think each person slept? (Don't forget the other rooms a family needs.) Where would overnight guests stay? How similar would life in the M'Clintock House be to life in a typical family home in the U.S. today?
2. What piece of information does the census include about Elizabeth but no other woman? How does that fit what else you know about her?
3. How does the presence of Mary Jackson and S.L. Freeman in the house illustrate the beliefs and activities of the M'Clintocks?
