Be advised that the index on Ancestry for the 1850 census for Benton Co, AL is not functional. If you type in a name in the search function without listing Benton Co as the location and that individual is in Benton Co, the name will be listed with Benton Co as the location. But if you search for anyone and list Benton Co as the location they will not be shown in a usable manner.
