Actual Census Image
I think it says:
|I think this is the family of L. H. Smith. I'm not related to this
Franzen is the head of household, but that's not what it would
look like to the untrained eye. I'm not certain about the remaining
individuals in this entry as I am not related to this family.
This family appears in the Ancestry.com 1860 census index under the last name Franson. This is a reasonable rendering and one that would be caught under a soundex based search for Franzen.
|This entry is for Gerd, Trientje and Claus Behrens. I
know it looks like his first name is Garrett, and I know some
Ostfriesens used Garrett as a first name, but no other record known
lists him as anything other than Gerd.
This entry appears in the index as:
A reasonable rendering given the enumeration. A soundex search for "Behrens" would have located this entry.
Gerd and Trientje are my great-great-great-great-great-grandparents.
|I think this is Henry Kapeman, the local
Lutheran Pastor. I'm not certain of the other members in this household
as I'm not related to this family either.
This family appears in the Ancestry.com 1860 census index under the surname Hapeman.
Henry's occupation is listed as:
Would you read that as Lutheran Clergyman?
|This is Herman Behrens. Also in the
household are his wife Anke (nee Lichtsinn) and (probably) Gerd, Folke,
Trientje, and Herman.
This family is indexed with the last name Barams. This is a reasonable rendering of the enumeration and one that would be located with a soundex search. The names were read as:
Herman is a brother to my ancestor, Ulfert Behrens.
Anke is a sister to my ancestor Frederick Lichtsinn Behrens.
|This is supposed to be Ekke Behrens.
Ekke Behrens is a brother to my ancestor, Ulfert Behrens.
His name appears in the Ancesry.com 1860 census index as Ekke Burse. This is not Soundex equivalent to Behrens.
The others in the household appear in the index as:
Actually I would have read the entry on line 36 as Gesche.
|This is Ulfert Behrens and his wife Recke (Fredericka), nee Lichtsinn. They are my
great-great-great-great-grandparents. Their two entries complete
the census page.
These names appear in the Ancestry.com 1860 census index as Wootfred and Recke Barrus. This is not Soundex equivalent to Behrens.
|The first set of entries on the
next census page completes the family from the previous page.
The surname on this entry is in the Ancestry.com index as Barnes. I'm not certain I think that's what it looks like, but fortunately Barnes and the actual surname of Behrens are Soundex equivalent. The first names of the children on this page appear in the index as:
Frartia--actually Trientje--is my 3rd great-grandmother.
|Behrens, Barnes, Burns
