Hi Mel, thanks for noticing that. After reading your post, I studied the bill of sale again, and had my family look at the name. They all agreed it looked like the name 'America' instead of 'Amanda' to them. I saw one 'America' living in Clay Township, Bradley County, AR., and she is 26 and last name is 'Tidwell.' She has a lot of folks living in the house with her, I wish the 1870 census told 'relationships!' Thanks again for noticing the age thing!
