What's Odd With this 1860 Census Enumeration




This 1860 Census enumeration for Wesley Jones and his household from Macon County, Missouri, is a little bit unusual.
I think I have it figured out and in volume 2, issue 5 or 6, we are taking a closer look at this enumeration. Any explanation of an unusual enumeration of this type has to have reasons grounded in something other than "I think." I'll make my case for what I think happened in issue 3 and outline additional research suggestions.
