Re: [TN] Guest, Henry 1880 Clr Designation?

Date: Thu, 8 Dec 2005 11:44:17 -0800

Tried to post my reply, and was not permitted. Here goes:

"My strong belief is that the designation is "Mu," and that the enumerator just has an extra tall upswing on the end of his "u's." Have you compared it to other "MU's", yet, attributed to that same enumerator?"

Take a look at this census image and tell me if what you see is MW
: or are my eyes playing tricks?
: Have you noted such designation in your research?
