Auto generated transcription of a census image
- This link is to a page for Simpson County, Mississippi. In the upper left corner that I think is suppose to be the county name "Simpson". Instead, the auto-generated county name is incorrectly listed as Sharkey. Census Records 1940.
- The family of interest is LYON-at the bottom of the page and highlighted. However, a family near the top (not a LYON) is also highlighted.
- Two issues with LYON family. HOH name is written as William T Lyon. The initial should be F . Three other individuals are listed, two spelled incorrectly. In this situation, the difference is important. In the 1900 census-same county-William F Lyon is one of 5 children living with the mother Lucy and her second husband P.B. Stubbs. P. B. Stubbs had several children at the time. One son is William T. Stubbs. Of course, the two are very close in age. The census taker listed all children in that family with the surname STUBBS leaving a confusing trail. In the past I've noted this to help others understand. I don't understand how to make the distinction on this record. I've been searching for the LYON father of 5 children and am sure others are as well. Without knowing the situation, the lineage of that family could be buried. Do you have a 1940 census image I can edit and clarify the family?
