I'm surprised the enumerator didn't cross off her name on the census sheet.
That was worthwhile to find!
My 2d greatgrandmother Eudocie Davis Leach is enumerated with her husband and
family on the 1840 US Census for Hancock County, IL. Two lines below her is
listed a Benjamin Davis, age somewhere in the 70's. I was sure I had her
father. In fact, it turned out that her father was Benjamin Davis and that
he would have been in his 70's on the 1840 census, if he hadn't died in 1836!
So who was the Benjamin Davis on that census? I never found out.

I've just come across an entry I've never seen before on a census return:
"Died on 6th April about 10am"
This was Ann Jones, unmarried sister-in-law of and living (up until 10
o'clock that morning) with John Llewhellin at North Gate, Haverfordwest
With the onset of wintry weather my transcribing of the Pembrokeshire 1891
census has restarted and the above entry was number 26,489 in my database. I
should finish Haverfordwest town by the end of next week.
