Re: John Julius Pringle in LA 1860 census

In Reply to: John Julius Pringle in LA 1860 census by Kate Stirk of 202

I am researching the Duncan family and I too, have noticed the discrepancy with this census listing in relation to the children of John Julius and Maria Linton Duncan Pringle. Maria is enumerated on the 1860 census at Auburn, the Duncan family estate in Natchez, Mississippi (Page 118, 863-863). This census was taken 20 July and the census of Torwood Plantation in Pointe Coupee was taken on 18 July. According to the book Mary's World: Love, War and Family Ties in 19th Century Charleston, by Richard N. Côté, Julius and Maria left the states and returned to France in July of 1860 leaving Torwood under the care of the overseer (page 202). I am wondering if Torwood's overseer in Pointe Coupee answered the census questions, as the Pringles were probably away at the time and possibly those listed are the overseer's family? Or if simply, the overseer was wrong? This census listing is definitely a mystery.
