Re: Feltman - Burdick

The father of these gentlemen was Mr Jacob Feltman.

The main thing to remember is that the census takers spelled the Feltman name differently. They have the name spelled Felpman in the 1860 census. However, in the 1850 census it is spelled Felpmon and in the 1830's it is spelled Feltman.

The 1830 Census lists only the number of people of a certain age in Jacob Feltman's family and here the name is spelled Feltman. He lived in Tuscaloosa at this point in his life.

Family information is split over two pages in the 1830 census and the last name is spelled Felpmon, but they are the same family.
