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

Nita,

In the 1860 Lawrence County census, the term "inmate" is usually used for any person in a household who is not the spouse or child of the head of the household. That person 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 relative of the head of the household or the wife. OR the person who is listed as "inmate" may not be related and may be working as a farm laborer, etc. The term inmate in this census does not mean that the person is poor, indigent, confined, etc. I know the relationship of the persons listed as "inmate" in the households of my relatives and some others. If you have a question about a specific person, let me know and I will see if I know it.
