This last man is the one I am interested in?Could this possibly be the JAMES W. McDow, b. Nov 1814 SC who had a family in Summerfield, Dallas Co., AL?He is listed as a "Tinner" in the previous Census.He was with his family on all previous Census Records but not with them on the 1860 Census and the Family Bible lists that he died in 1861 so we have never determined the exact place or cause of his death?I wondered if he might be working away from home during the 1860 Census?
