    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: timojean Surnames: Quick, Hithcock Heathcock.... Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.quick/1438/mb.ashx Message Board Post: When people read the census they sometimes fail to realize that the census takers at one time were told to record the persons who were in the household on the day that they visited. Which could mean double entries on the local census So, let's say that the Heathcock child was over visiting. They'd record him within the household. He could have been a relative; or, a neighbor's child taken in. As, I pointed out a few years ago.... There maybe a clue on the census. Someone told me that there is a mark that indicates such but I have yet to see it. Either way until we figure it out related to the child we don't know for sure. I found info on how to read censuses of different years on line. If the son and daughter in law were living within the household same thing. Only the head of that household would be recorded as head of household. On some censuses, I have found dtr in law but most not. Especially confusing around War years wherein families were hanging on to survive! in one dwelling. And, if the census is typed or written as a copy, not too reliable, need to see the original census. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
