Hi Jack, & all you little green helpers out there (:~>)
He needs some new eyes to view these images to detect:
l) SURNAME in 1860 as transcribed by Ancestry.com....follow directions and
read lines 18- 21
2) NAME OF CENSUS TAKER in 1860
McGANN in 1860 US Census, circuitous route, as this spelling doesn't bring
up James via Ancestry or Heritage Quest. So we try the old "Use a Neighbor"
Go on Ancestry.com
Enter Name: Albert Robinson
Birth Year: 1856
Home in 1860:Ossining, Westchester, New York
State: New York,

Anything else to add, Jack?

> and married Mary Carr McGann. They had two children Annie and Thomas.
> We found Mary and the children in the 1870 Brooklyn census and she listed
