In Response To: GOENS Pearl & MILTON James • IN ()
I am sure you have seen the 1860 census showing a 10 year old James Milton in the Wayne County, Indiana home of his father, Boone Milton, who was a free black man born in North Carolina. I have a feeling that this may be James R. Milton's father in the home of his parents. The difference is that the 10 yr old was said to be born in Indiana on the census and his mother is said to have been born in North Carolina too, but errors are found on censuses all the time. Here's the census abstract, and you can see for yourself.
