Jack,

Here’s the information you requested:

1870 Census of Brown County, Illinois, Elkhorn Twp

125/125                       1 Aug 1870

Ebenezer Currens 25 m farmer Ohio

Josephine Currens 20 f Illinois

Not Named Currens 1/12 m Illinois, b. Apr

 

Just an additional note about the census. The census taker was supposed to indicate ages relative to the end of the census year. The census year for 1870 was Jun 1 1869 to May 31, 1870. So, this person appears to have followed instructions on aging the child. If we back up one month from May 1870, we get April. There is a column on this census for the month of birth for children born in the census year.

 

Sincerely,

Ken Huffman
