I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.


Facts you should know about the early census records –

All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"
Immigration date is not recorded

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members with their birthplaces

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++



Need DOB + birthplace for Delphia Ada Arbold, Lizzie[Elizabeth] [Arbold] Ledford, Asa Ledford,

You wrote -" they had my grandfather." NEED 1st name + DOB + birthplace.

You wrote - "My Mother was born and died in MS." Need 1st name + DOB.

You wrote - "They went to AR. where my grandfather was born" WHAT is the time period???

Need 1st names + DOB's + birthplaces for all of Lizzie's children.........

There is a 20 yr gap in the census records [1880 - 1900] as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's.
