James Ormand - Chickasaw County MS - 1860
On the 1860 Chickasaw County MS census there is James Ormand age 52, born SC with wife Mary and 9 children.The
problem with this is the nine children belong to Amos Smith
One of these children is Joel age 7 who is my grandfather. I know who these children are, whom they married etc.
There is an Amos Smith a house or two away, age 26, listed as a school teacher.The head of the Nat Archives Branch in Atlanta told me that census takers were not allowed to do the census on sheets of paper and then transfer it to the book.I feel this has been done here.I believe James Ormand may be the teacher and Amos the father.I know Amos Smith was illiterate so he was not a teacher.I have searched the census in other years for James Ormand.
Can anyone tell me who he is.
