Living on family farm in Jackson, Snyder, Pennsylvania. real estate valued @ $5000. personal estate valued @ $1400.

Living with the family is George Row 20yr (a mason) Lydia Row 20yr and Sarah Row 4 months. they have no personal or real estate value.  At first I thought this was Henry's daughter Lydia, but she is already married to Solomon Kline, and has a 1 year old daughter named May.  Emmanual, son of Henry, later marries a Lydia Row - but it's not this Lydia.  It is maybe a sister of George Row here?  I'm unsure what the connection is between these families, at this time.

Research:

"In 1879, my greatgreat grandmother's cousin (2nd cousin I think) killed himself. As his widow was unable to care for their young boys...Joel Percival Leitzel 6 and Enos Adam Leitzel 4 , the orphan court appointed Noah Brouse as their guardian. Noah's brother Samuel is also in the photo. (see photo at the top of the page)
The Brouse family, Row family, Leitzel family were all close, married into each other's families over many years. In fact Mary Row married one of those little boys (Joel Percival Leitzel)."
