Re: Devan Look Up Request
In Response To: Devan Look Up Request ()
The 1870 census does not list him as owning real estate.
Te "value of real estate" column is blank.
He does have $150 in personal property.
have you checked probate records at the Cape Girardeau site?
THe link above (if you remove the extra Https ) only is for current property.
In 1870 he was living next to Harriet Alton and kids, who is likely a cousin -- I checked pages before & after and they were the only 2 black families on 4 pages.
