I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.


Not likely that you will find the information you are seeking and these statements explain why -

Facts you should know about the early census records -
All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated                     
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]
       
1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++


WHERE did Elizabeth Radcliffe live after the CW??

NEED DOB + birthplace for Richard Sr. & Jr.

Elizabeth Radcliffe does not appear on the 1850 thru 1880 census.

GEORGIA Records – The State of Georgia did not maintain death and birth records until 1919.
