Hi again - goodness I didn't mean to confuse you. By "posting" I just meant put it in writing on the forum. When you write any note or message and place it on the internet, that's posting.
I'll try not to use language like that - what you called "techie." Sometimes I don't realize that some word might sound technie to another person.
A transcription is when someone types the words found on a record. Transcriptions are great because there's a lot of information on a record that we might not think of when we casually refer to a record. For example when a person says stuff like "I found him in the census in 1880 in Iceland" that leaves out a lot of information that is available in that census record.
Actually I was just looking at the Allphins and didn't get the information you specifically requested. Sorry. But since I'm here I'll post some informaton I found. I transcribed the key information in the census records, as you'll see. I'll "post" it here:

Lawrence's wife Ada Catherine Kindree Allphin was living in 1940 so they must have been divorced or separated. I didn't find her in 1940 census though.
