Re: [BULLARD] Bullards in Robeson County, NC
- Hi Wade,
Thanks much for the confirmation. Makes sense to me. I've run into the same thing, so I figure that's probably the case here; the recorder probably just put a one in the adjacent column. Anyway, the 1820 data really helped a lot. Thank you again, and all the very best. Cheers, Mike

Hi Michael, Just for your peace of mind (and mine), I double checked the 1820 Census, and it really does indicate the numbers I sent you. For the record, the second column for male and female should read "Of 10 and under 16". I wouldn't struggle too much with the ages as listed in the census. I have done a lot of work with the census, and it is not unusual for a person to be listed under the wrong column --- especially when it is a matter of a couple of years (or 4 or 5). Literacy rate was low, and many times the census enumerator simply guessed at the ages. Regards, Wade M.
