There are several ways to access census info.Unfortunately, the data that is posted on the web too frequently seems to be spotty in the wrong spots, as in this case.Your local library may subscribe to a census data provider that will get you better coverage of some censuses, plus it’s indexed and searchable and it’s free. I was able to wring out a few individual listings from the net using known first names that seem to fit into your scenario. 1850 Census - Jefferson Co., KY Simon Sale <1843> Caroline Sale <1825> Eanmel Sale <1816>
1860 Census - Jefferson Co., KY Simon Sale <1844> M. L. Sale <1817>
1870 Census - Randolph Co., IL Siemon Sale <1844>
1900 Census - Monroe Co., IL Simon Sale <1844>
These are transcribed, partial listings and their accuracy, not to mention any potential interconnection is hypothetical.Nevertheless, it does appear to indicate a possible path of investigation.At least to fill in the missing information, and see if there's more to be found - other persons in the household, such as Andrew (not found) or other households.
I read the other inquiry regarding Matthew.Combined with the 1860 listing for M. L., it made me wonder if M. L. equals Emil??It's the same sound.And what about ‘Eanmel’ = M. L.???Transcription and recording errors do pop up – do they ever!?If you can pull the census info from 1900-1920 together with 1850-1870, I think you'll have a much better perspective on your research.
