Would someone who has access to the actual census images do a lookup for the
following family and see if this is correct? I believe Sousan is Susan
Lawson, but why would the last names of the children be Jackson or was that
an error either with the transcriber or the enumerator on the original
pages? I'd appreciate the help.
