      I have a copt (sic) of the marriage license between Pedro [Baham] and Mary Virginia Beer. So I would assume that Mary mentioned on the 1850 census and Virginia on the lter census are the same. It also state that the marriage legitimized the children. Some of the names match those on the census.
