", Eleanor, wife, 36, married LA LA LA
", Milstead, daughter, 14, LA LA LA
"Milstead" sounds like a male name, but in the relationship column,
"daughter' is definately written, and in the sex column, "F".
of birth and that of his parents is incorrect, but we've seen before how
screwed up census info can be. Maybe "Milstead" is a boy !?!?
