Re: At Wits End...1860 Census
In Response To: At Wits End...1860 Census ()
I ran into this, too. There are several "check marks" on the page. However, I noticed the bottom of the page lists the numbers of white males and females. On this page, it adds up to 40--the total number listed. Now this tells me that either everyone was White, looked White, or a sympathetic census taker was lying in some cases.
