In researching my Collett family, I found a transcription error in ancestry.com for this family in the Valley Township, Cherokee County, NC 1870 census record (digital image is on page 9 of 27).This transcription error applies to Hugh and his children, and also to Hugh's parents Abram and Mary.
Here is the incorrect index and it's correction:
Household 61, Family 61
Thomas Colla = Abram Collet Mary Colla = Mary Collet
Household 62, Family 62
Joseph Calles, age 24 = Hugh Collet, M,age 44 Margaret Calles, age 18 = McDowell Collet, M, age 18 Datha Calles, age 16 =John Collet , M, age 16 Andrew Calles, age 15= Eldora Collet, F, age 15 Mary Calles, age 15 = Mary Collet, F, age 13 Nancy Calles, age 10 = Mandy Collet, F, age 12 George Calles, age 10 = George Collet, M, age 10 Leander Calles, age 4 = Leander (L. Wood) Collet, M, age 8 Elizabeth Calles, age 6 = Elizabeth Collet, F, age 6 Thomas Calles, age 4 = Harriett Collet, F, age 4 Margaret Calles, age 2 = Margaret Collet, F, age 1
Hope this is helpful to other Collett researchers.I am descended from the family of Mary Collett who married Adolphus Callaway Gray.Mary was born January 21, 1857 in Cherokee County, North Carolina and died December 11, 1927 in Little River County, Arkansas and was buried in Woodstock Cemetery, New Boston, Bowie County, Texas.She married Adolphus Callaway Gray on December 25, 1879 in Cherokee County, North Carolina.
