Tom Schenk here. I have to respond to you on this message relative to your posting on the Mayo Genealogy message board regarding John and Mary Kilker and the 1860 census. I just happened to find your message from Dec 2004 and was able to find your Kilkers in the 1860 census. They're in Ward 1, Keokuk, Iowa under the name KELKAM. All the children match up with the info from your message, except for Rodney. They've identified him as "boy" 1 yr. Let me know if I can ever help out.
