Re: 1910 and 1920 Census Lookup for FL

First, lets confirm where Eugene was during the census years.

Now in 1900 I found his wife Mary but not him in Pensacola Fla. He was not listed in the Family. He may have been off in School are preaching somewhere.

Beulah dau age 11

In 1910, he is in Columbus, Georgia believe or not.

In 1930, I found Mary again but not Eugene. What is interesting here is that she is in Detroit Michigan and it states that she is married and not widowed, so Eugene is still alive.

Name: Mary Carter
Age: 70
Estimated birth year: abt 1860
Birthplace: Alabama
Relation to head-of-house: Mother
Race: Negro
Home in 1930: Detroit, Wayne, Michigan

Isadora dau age 40
Eugene dau age 38
Buhla(misspelled) age 34. It also states that she was born in NC

It looks like they kept control over there daughters :)

It sure seems like Eugene led a very active life. This is a very interesting story. So tell me how are you related to Eugene?

Okay lets find James and Queen Carter.

In 1870 James is in Wilcox County, Snow Hill, Ala

Name: James Carter Farmer
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1833
Age in 1870: 37
Birthplace: Alabama
Home in 1870: Snow Hill, Wilcox, Alabama
Family and neighbors: View Results
Race: Mulatto
Gender: Male
Post Office: Camden

Wife: Queen age 37 Mullato
Egenia(Misspelled) age 9
Mary age 3
There is also a Mary Carter age 47 living with them
And it appears that this Mary as two children name Lucy age 18 and Ellen

In 1880 he is still in Ala

Name: James Carter
Age: 39
Estimated birth year:
Birthplace: Alabama
Occupation: Farmer
Relationship to head-of-household: Self
Home in 1880: Snow Hill, Wilcox, Alabama
Marital status: Married
Race: Mulatto
Gender: Male
Spouse's name: Queen Carter
Father's birthplace: GA
Mother's name: Mary Carter
Mother's birthplace: VA (wow now that is very interesting)
Wife Queen age 39
Eugene age 18
Mary age 13

Note: I believe that the ages in 1870 were wrong which often happened. I am more inclined to believe the 1880 ages.

Now in 1900, 1910, and 1920 I could not find them. You may have to assume that they did not live to 1910. Eugene traveled so much and being that James and Queen were elderly, they may not have been able to travel with him.

So, it may be a good idea for you to start looking for death certificates. They may never have left Ala, so you may be able to find some death certificates in Ala of James and Queen.


PS. My bill is in the mail......Just kidding :)
