Re: McCulloch family of Jefferson Co. Mo.
Yes, it would be nice if the early censuses listed all members of the family. That would certainly make my job a lot easier. I can tell you for certain that settlement documents, as well as wills, do not always list all children of the deceased. Many times the only ones listed are those from the current marriage, or those that are still living at home and require financial support. It is very possible that there were other, grown children, who were not mentioned. Thanks for your response.
