I'm glad I could help. I, too, had seen the Free White Mulattoes website some time ago, and found it very interesting. That's why it stood out in my memory when I saw that Newsletter article on Ancestry a few months ago. I also agree that the Newsletter article is really very informative in explaining exactly what some of those marks are all over the census pages. I used to always wonder why some of them were there and wasn't sure as to who had made them and why. I hope everyone will take a look at that article because it really helps explain exactly how to read the census pages.
