Re: 1860 Lawrence Co., MO census

In Reply to: 1860 Lawrence Co., MO census by Nita of 857

Nita,

In the 1860 Lawrence County census, the term "inmate" usually only means that the person is not the spouse or child of the head of household. The person listed as inmate MAY be the father, mother, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother, sister, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, cousin, or some other relative of the head of the household or the wife. OR the "inmate" may not be a relative at all. The person might be a laborer working on the farm, etc. In this census, the term inmate does not mean that the person is indigent, poor, or any such thing. I know the relationships of those listed as "inmate" in my relatives' families. If you have a specific person or family in mind, I might be able to help identify them.
