I found the subject that I was looking for listed with 5 or 6 pages of children. He was 6 years old in this 1860 census and the pages were all children and no adults.
Does anyone know what the cause of this is? Is it a school, and or an orphanage?
search for Danl McDonald B: 1854 and you will see the 1860 census for Ward 9 New Orleans.
