Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

CONFLICTS

Birth Date: This database uses 8 October 1801. Using his age (49) on the official 1850 census date of 1 June 1850 gives a birth date range from 2 June 1800 to 1 June 1801. [census-us-1850-ps-oh-clinton-jefferson-243b]

SPELLING

Given Name: This database uses Mahlon. The 1850 U.S. Census uses Malan. [census-us-1850-ps-oh-clinton-jefferson-243b]

Surname: This database uses Hockett. The 1850 U.S. Census uses Hocket. [census-us-1850-ps-oh-clinton-jefferson-243b]

FOLLOWUP

Mahlon may have been born in Grayson Count, Virgina, and may have died in 1862.

The 1850 US Census places Mahlon on the second line (the "spouse" line) instead of as head-of-household. Does this have some meaning, or is it just an enumerator choice? [census-us-1850-ps-oh-clinton-jefferson-243b]

The 1850 US Census notes that Mahlon and his son Alvah were farming adjacent land after Alvah married. Did Mahlon split off part of his farm? [census-us-1850-ps-oh-clinton-jefferson-243b]
