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

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"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

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

Additionally, many ppl did not know WHEN or WHERE they were born. They did not know WHEN OR WHERE their parents were born.

Census records do not record the specific locality of a person's birth. Only the state or country is recorded.

Samuel McClure Hinchey was the son of Lucy King and Samuel Hinchey. He used his initials "SMC" on most documents, but also went by the nickname "Sam." He was born in Saratoga County NY, but his parents settled in Monroe County, near Rochester, in the town of Gates. His father died, age 80, in 1837 just before the family moved to Michigan.

SMC married Patience Hart. They were at one time the largest land owners in Putnam Twp. In one Michigan census he reported that he was a butcher's peddler 3rd class. This meant that he was essentially a farmer, but went from place to place to dispose of the fruits of his business.

Known children:

George Burdick
Mary J.
Chester O.
Lucia M. "Lucy"
Erastus Gilman

The obituary of Erastus, however, said he was the youngest of ten children of his parents.
