  1. Initials instead of names always makes me mad. I'm relieved when I can match them up easily the next census, but when they don't match - GRRRR!

    1. I completely understand what you are saying. Those initials rather than names sometimes make me want to pull out my hair. ha!

  2. I always like your Census Sunday posts because you make it so easy to understand who's who and where they were when.

    1. Marian, thanks for stopping by & for your kind comments!

  3. Have you found any connection to the Ball Family of Charleston, SC?
