Thank you for your prompt reply. I have not seen an 1830 U.S. census for Jefferson Co.,so was unaware of Absolom's presence in LeRoy at that time. You mentioned a John BRIGGS in the same household. Could this be his father & were the individuals listed by name & age ? If so, this would be great news & likely the breakthrough I'm looking for. Do you know how I can access an 1830 U.S. census online ?
