Just found a whole section of the 1900 Ellis Co., TX (Pct. 1, Dist. 14) census where the census taker listed all the female offspring as "Darter." LOL! His first name was "Whipple."

Also found some pages in 1850 Weakley Co., TN (Dist. 5, pp. 453-455) where someone (in different handwriting) made notes next to some of the names, showing women's maiden names and relationship to HOH, corrected the spelling, etc. Must have been when the original records were still available to the public.
