Anticipate the surname distorion to "Milton"! Also anticipate "soundex" use by census enumerators. Two of my cousins (brother/sister) were enumerated incorrectly, but they retained the errors their entire lives. Illiteracy was a significant factor in early America thus the emphasis on recording educational levels on 1940 Census. Find Elbert "Milton" in 1880 Falls and learn both parents were born in Florida. Find the "Milton" family in 1870 and I believe the son identified as "Albert" could have been "Elbert"? I'm not related!
