Notes from the past…

A very interesting find

1 Comment

While searching the 1860 Federal Census for Lauderdale County, Mississippi looking for Susan Martin, I found a 2nd enumeration for Dr John F Kennedy! I had previously found him listed with his brother, Dr Sidney P Kennedy and his family, living in Beat No 2 in Lauderdale County. In the second mention, also in Beat 2, he is listed alone. I’m thinking the first was his medical practice location:

John F Kennedy, 1860 enumeration #1

the second his private residence:

John F Kennedy 1860 #2

Anyway, I have finished with Beat 1 & Beat 2, and am on page 11 of Beat 3.

One thought on “A very interesting find

  1. I have never heard of a Beat – it is like a city Ward, I’m assuming?

    Isn’t it funny how some ancestors are so easy to find in the census, and some seem to have been down in the cellar, or perhaps orbiting the earth on a rocketship, when the census enumerators came to call.
