I was doing some research on a John Beatty/Battie and came across this census entry. I thought it might help someone, but mostly I found it humorous:
1860 Federal census for Bowling Township, Rock Island County, IL
The items I recorded are:
Value of Real Estate
Value of Personal Estate
Place of Birth
John Betty 56 M W Gentleman (formerly an Irish Lord) 12800 3600 Ireland
Elizabeth Betty 57 F W Wife --- --- Ireland
Jno Fitzgerald Betty 27 M W Young Gentleman of elegance and leisure --- --- Ireland
The census lists other family members.
I have no info on or relationship to this family. After looking at census film for hours, I found the entry humorous and thought someone might find it useful.
