Wow! that was fast! - You have found the correct man and the correct census that I have found. The image [#27 of 27] is the right-hand side of the original. The 2 people recorded are not the Thomas Waters family. They are people of color who are in service to the family. I have some blank 1820 census records that I use to transcribe the specific data for research. The left-hand side should have 6 age range columns for White Males followed by 5 age range columns for White females... then followed by columns to indicate occupational areas. The right-hand side looks exactly like what you found. What's weird about the Gibson County images that you and I have found is that Images except for #27=the last one and the one for Thomas Waters, all seem to be just the left-hand side of the original pages. I have located married children of my Thomas Waters on Images 17, 18 & 19 and they have the correct columns [6 -> 5 -> occupations] that I mentioned - but not Image #27 ???? go figure ??? Thank you so much for your interest and prompt reply - I hope this makes sense.
