Betty: 1860 Bowling Twn, Rock Island, IL
Posted by: Mark McVey Date: March 21, 2001 at 06:53:16
  of 168

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:

Name
Age
Sex
Color
Occupation
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.
