Are These All The Same Guy?
Enoch Tinsley appears in every census from 1820 through 1870, in Kentucky and Indiana. The images on this post are his name in each of those entries.

In the next issue of Casefile Clues, we'll look at Enoch's census entries and see what they tell us about him. We will also analyze how these entries were found.
