Census Sunday – Benjamin Hill Brumfield in MS

I have Christopher W Vinson from FL, my 4th cousin 1x removed, to thank for giving me some information on our joint Brumfield family. He gave me some basics on this branch of the family and from there I did some searching on I was able to find these two census reports:
