Hi Eddie,
Not a prob.

1870 Claib.
p181, Ward 7, Homer Post Office,
ed 08 July 1870
dwelling/family # 49/49

J. Henry, 40, male, black, farm laborer, GA, no read/write
Emily ", 35, f, b, keeps house, GA, no read/write
Laura/Lania?, 18, f, b, LA, no read/write
John, 14, m, b, LA, no read/write
Mary, 12, f, b, LA, no read/write
Harriett, 11, f, b, LA, no read/write
Albert, 5, m, b, LA
Charley, 2, m, b, LA
Parilee, 1 month, f, b, LA, born in May

One note--the dwelling/family number "49" is written beside both J. and Emily's names. It appears that the enumerator just made a mistake and wrote it on the wrong line at first. But it also appears that J. and Emily are definitely husband/wife and those are their children. This is probably why J. and Emily are both listed in whatever index you found them in.

Hope this helps your search!
