HELP--1860 CENSUS--checkmark for COLOR?
Posted by: msn (ID *****6415) Date: May 01, 2003 at 11:16:57

What does the checkmark in the column for color mean on the 1860 census. The column list white, black or mulatto. Most spaces are blank, does that mean white? Only a few have a checkmark, does this mean they are black OR mulatto? Was the checkmark to be lined up under black or lined up under mulatto to mean that color?
