for the following 1850 & 1860 Census data:

1850 CENSUS Warwick, Orange County, New York
John Morgan, 35, occupation; colier, Amy Morgan 29, Sarah M. Morgan 12, Wm. Morgan 8, Elizabeth Morgan 5, Mary Morgan 2.,... Elizabeth Burns 18,.. Mary Vanzile 12,.. Sarah Vanzile 9 ... all born in NYspelling of these last 3 ladies is not absolute but they are clearly listed in the same household as the Morgans. (see census image link above) Also of interest; A Mary Ann Vanzile, b.abt 1839 Orange county, NY, died in 1876 in Brooklyn, NY according to Kings County municipal death records (this may or may not be the same Mary from this 1850 census.)
