My grandmother and her parents and grandparents (at least) resided in various parts of Lexington County, SC.
I have found all (most?) of them on both the 1860 and 1880 census; I have found none of them on an 1870 census, anywhere.
Here's what I have; I am including a couple of people who were born around 1869 - they may be missing due to inaccurate birthdate:
Hattie O'dell Hallman (Pound) b 1869, Gilbert Hollow on 1880 census, no 1870 census 2nd wife of Peter Hilliard Christian Pound.
Peter Hilliard Christian Pound b 1851, Orangeburg on 1860 census, Boiling Springs on 1880 census, no 1870 census.
Lucy Ann Younginer Pound b 1850, Clarks Mills on 1860 census, Boiling Springs on the 1880 census. 1st wife of Peter Hilliard Christian Pound.
Thomas Wesley Hallman b 1835, Lightwood Creek on 1860 census, Gilbert Hollow on 1880. No 1870. Father of Hattie Hallman.
Zilpha B Hallman, b 1805, died 1871 according to headstone. Only census I could find her on at all was 1860, Lightwood Creek. Mother of Thomas Wesley Hallman.
EDIT: Okay, weird! Seconds after I posted this a hint popped up for Zilpha B Hallman; I couldn't find an 1850 census for them, but it's there now! Still no 1870, though.
Barbara Catherine Clark Hallman b 1841, Clarks Mills on 1860 census, Gilbert Hollow on 1880. No 1870 census. Mother of Hattie Hallman.
Andrew J Clark b 1818, Clarks Mills on 1860, Chinquapin on 1880. No 1870 Likewise for his wife and children, his father, and his wife's parents.
Is there some commonality between these places the would indicate a lost page or a missed area for the 1870 census? I think that this is too many people to be missing for it to be transcription or spelling errors.
Can anyone help? I need the 1870 information to find a missing link and it's driving me nuts!
