Re: Lost Census Records
In Response To: Re: Lost Census Records ()

Mine were from North Carolina where there definitely were plenty of changes in the county lines over the years. One particular town, for instance, Littleton, was spread over two counties, Warren & Halifax, and over the years, you'd see the people there enumerated in either county, I guess depending on whatever agreement the counties may have had. Finally, sometime after 1900, the town was finally incorporated into Halifax Co. But that's just one of the stories, I'm sure there are countless others across the country with similiar circumstances that just may not even be known by current researchers.
