Narrative:

     Janett F. Flora was born about 1823 in Virginia.4,5,6 She was probably the female age 10 to 15 listed in the household of her father in the 1830 Federal Census of Halifax Co., Virginia, though she was not yet 10 years old.8 She was probably one of the two females age 20 to 30 listed in the household of her father in the 1840 Federal Census of Halifax Co., Virginia, though she was not yet 20 years old.9
     Janett married Roderick P. Calhoun on 21 Dec 1848 in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia.1,7
     Janett and Roderick P. Calhoun appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, enumerated 16 Dec 1850, reporting no real estate but 26 slaves, ranging in age from 2 to 60. Her parents were evidently living close by, or perhaps even in the same dwelling, as they are listed next in the census record.4,10
     Janett and Roderick appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Bachelor's Hall, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, enumerated 18 Jul 1860, reporting personal estate of $900. Their children Annie, Emma, George and Martha were listed as living with them.11
     Janett and Roderick appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Danville, Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, enumerated 23 Aug 1870, reporting no real estate, but $1,000 in personal estate.12
     Janett and Roderick appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, enumerated 7 Jun 1880.13
     
Research Note:
No record of Roderick or Janett has been found after 1880. It seems likely they died between 1880 and 1900, but they do not appear in the Pittsylvania Co. death records, which are available for that period. Perhaps they followed their married daughter Annie to Rockingham Co. North Carolina. Death records there for that period have not been found.
