Has anyone noticed missing pages in the Walton Co. census for 1860? This seems to be the case with the microfilmed copies that can be pulled up on Heritage Quest and Ancestry.com. I don't know if the copies at the GA Archives or NARA are in the same shape.
The following is the example we have found with my husband's Turner family:
There is a page with the no. 105 and then a 4 over the 5. The census date is 6 July 1860. The first household on the page is 651/651 Leroy McCoy. The last on the page is 658/658 J. M. Turner with wife Juery and daughter
Martha age 7. Several other children known to have been born before 1860 are not listed. A blank line follows. When we arrow over to the next page, the page number 106 is struck out and page no. 993 substituted. This page begins in the list of what we presume to be household 671/671 as the first complete household is 672/672. The last on this page is 674/674. All the households on this page have large families so only 3 and a fraction families are on the page (assuming the last one is complete; it too ends with a blank line).
Assuming maybe an average of 5 families to a page, it appears that there are two or three pages missing (households 659 - the beginning of 671).
Has anyone else had this experience with this census?
Of course, it is one of those missing Turner children that we are trying to trace.
Any comments or suggestions?
