Classification: Query
I’m not related to any member of this family.

NOTE -
There is a 20 yr. gap in the census records [1880 - 1900] as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's. Add 20 yrs to everyone's 1880 age for the 1900 census.

Census records do not record the “specific locality” of a person’s birth.
Census records only record where a person was born – state or country.
Census records record where a person was living when the census taker came by.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

Facts you should know about the early census records –

All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"
Immigration date is not recorded

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members with their birthplaces

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++

Co. C 24th IA Inf - Enlisted 8 Aug 1862

The Tipton Advertiser October 23, 1862 Vol 9 No 43 Page 3.

DIED,
At Camp Strong near Muscatine, on the 17th inst. of inflammation of the bowels, Mr. DWIGHT M. PERRY, of Company C, 24th Regiment.

Mr. Perry was seventeen years of age. His father resides in Crawford Co., Ohio. Dwight was always a good boy. Under the faithful teachings of an excellent mother, he grew up to be a noble young man. None knew him but to to love him. About eight months since he sought and we have good reason to believe he found the "pearl of great price."

When the last call was made for Volunteers, Dwight wanted to enlist at once, but like a dutiful son he waited until he received his fathers consent. While in camp he was prompt and efficient and won the respect and esteem of all. But alas' he has fallen. He was an affectionate and dutiful son, a true patriot and we trust he rests in a christian soldier's grave.

A large concourse of people attended his funeral in M. E. church, on Sunday 19th inst, at 2 1/2 o'clock p.m. The sermon was preached by Rev. S. N. Fellows from 90th Psalm and 12th verse: "So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

At Camp Strong near Muscatine, on the 17th inst. of inflammation of the bowels, Mr. DWIGHT M. PERRY, of Company C, 24th Regiment.

Mr. Perry was seventeen years of age. His father resides in Crawford Co., Ohio. Dwight was always a good boy. Under the faithful teachings of an excellent mother, he grew up to be a noble young man.

The subject of the above notice was the oldest son of R.G. Perry, of Osceola. Some extracts from letters asking his father's consent to volunteer, will be of interest to many of his relatives and friends in Ohio.
