In Response To: Census of 1900 and 1920 ()

You will need to trace the family back to the 1870 census before you can start slave research.
This is how I'm reading the 1920 census of Willis DIXON household:
Wife Ester age 51
Daughter, Ressie or Bessie, 20
Daughter,Joshie, 19
Son, J.N.C., 15
Daughter, Jessie, 14
Daughter, Perie or Ponie, 12
Son, J.C., 8
Daughter, Johnny L., 2
Grandson, Leroy, 2 months

Here the family is in 1910
Jackson County, FL, Precinct 12, ED 43, sheet 12B
DICKSON, Willis, B, 45, Married 1, 25 yrs, born FL, parents FL
