“ Even United States Federl Census records have a way of coming up with discrepancies created by what the census taker believes he hears and/or the manner in which it is transcribed by the census taker. There are those that give their information gladly and clearly to the census taker and there are those who won’t give out any more than they feel is necessary. In other words it is no one else’s business so the less said the better. “
“Here you have Jason S. Scott appearing to possibily be Jesse S. Scott. You have wife as Sarah L. Scott where as our present knowledge was as Emma L. Scott. Maiden names seem to get lost in the transition.
