CENSUS "TWILIGHT ZONE"
I just had to share what I think is a very strange that happened while researching 1880 MS census for my paternal GM George Walker. I came across this:
Name: George W. Walker
SOURCE: Year: 1880; Census Place: Northeast, Attala, Mississippi; Roll: T9_641; Family History Film: 1254641; Page: 56.3000; Enumeration District: 15; Image: 0114.
Then, I came across a married Emily with her two daughters Maggie and Mollie living Kosciusko, Attala, Mississippi; Roll: T9_641; Family History Film: 1254641; Page: 38.3000; Enumeration District: 13; Image: 0078.
I thought I was in the Twilight Zone, or something. What did Emma get counted then divorced and counted again in another part of town? Is it possible that some people got counted twice in different areas for the same census?
