Can anyone else find results from the Eastern Division, Fayette, Kentucky, 1840 U S census?
Here is a sample page: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GYYT-9995?i=20&wc=31SK-MV5:1588665941,1588666049,1588667631&cc=1786457
Let's pretend I didn't know this page existed. I do a search for (for instance) a Mary Coppage, with my only filter being a resident of Kentucky in 1840. I get zero results, even though she is indexed on the page. The same thing happens with any person in that "Eastern Division" of Fayette for the 1840 census. It does not happen for the Western Division. That same area seems to have similar search result problems in the 1830 census.
Am I doing something wrong or is this being excluded from the search results?
The reason you are not getting any results is that the residence place has been indexed as "Fayette, Pennsylvania, United States". I only discovered this by inputting just "United States" in the Residence Place field. I know very little about US geography, but assume you would know the state where Mary Coppage lived, so this is purely an indexing error.
It is always best to widen the search area if results are not found on a more narrow search. For example, my relatives are indexed as living in "Sunderland, Durham" in some records and as "Monkwearmouth, Durham" in others - even though they are at the same street address! Being used to not finding them in some searches, I now enter just "Durham" in the search fields.0
