    The child Lucinda in the list below never appears in any census.  Fromthe order of lisitng, Wiliam must be the last child, and does show upin the 1860 census.  Thus it looked like Lucinda was born and diedbetween the 1850 and 1860 censuses.  The right portion of the censusscan on is cut off, obscuring most of the birth statefield.  But then Lucinda is reported in the 1970 census at age 15,meaning she should have been in the 1860 census.  So where was she?

    Another family in Lafayette County, Mississippi, looks very much likethis one, and I cannot otherwise identify them.  The parents are Jesseand Mima (nickname for Jemima).  They have a son Jasper whom somematch up with Reuben (and this corresponds with a related couple,Richard Andrew Philpot and Nancy Ann Holliday,  who named their sonReuben Jasper).  Thomas here matches Reuben's brother.  Other childrenhere, also, are very close to the other famliy:  William, Elizabeth,Jemima (Penina).

    I found that Lafayette is right next to Calhoun County, and thisappears to be one of the cses where soemone was enumerated twice.  Ihave several examples for individuals.  I think this is only secondone I have seen for a whole famliy.

    The Calhoun County record was taken in July and the Lafayette Countyone in September.  They may have either moved, or they were theretemporarily and got counted with the permanent household members.  In1880, they are in DeSoto County, with two related families.  DeSoto isa little to the north of Lafayette.

    The ages of Jessee and Jemima vary a little, being reported as 50(Jesse) and 49 (Jemima) in July and 45 and 40 respectively inSeptember.  Ages vary a lot in census reports, a there is a year ortwo difference in the children's reported ages, common for that era.Otherwise they are a close match.

    In 1870, Jesse and Jemima are living with their daughter Penina(reproted as Perlina), with other children.  There is a new name,Jane, which I cannot relate to any previous reported child, butappears to be a child of Jesse and Jemima.  The name Jane does notappear in the child lists on the Find-a-Grave memorials.
