1820 CENSUS; UNION TWP, MADISON CO, OH; ROLL 94 PGE 78 JOHN JEFFERSON SENR 1 0 1 3 0 1 0 0 1 0 1 0 (1male 0-10~1 male 16-18~3 males 16-26~1 male over 45) Who is the 5th boy? Change Date: 26 MAR 2005 [Note: This is peculiar---he's not listed as John Jefferson Melvin, but as John Jefferson. I serious doubt that this is a record for John Melvin. The use of a middle name for someone born before 1760 is fairly unusual. I suspect someone along the way has incorrectly aplied a record for a John Jefferson, to John Melvin, and interpolated to get a middle name for John Melvin. Bill 13:34, 3 December 2006 (UTC)]
