Eugene Pradat
Posted by: Gene McLeod Date: November 26, 2001 at 17:45:47
  of 14

Hi List,
I am trying to confirm my suspicion that the lineage on the census tracking and WFT info are the same families.
I have made some notes and probably missed some. Any help on making the confirmation would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.

Notes: Comparing 1850-1870 censuses to 1880 census: 1. E.C. and John B. are living next door to each other. John in dwelling 11 and E.C. in dwelling 12.
2. Wife conflict – 1870 census Louisa born Indiana. 1880 census Bella born in LA and mother born in Indiana. Keep in mind census takers not well-educated and language barriers. Mistakes are often made on the censuses. Could it be a mistake? Nickname? Did Louisa die and E.C. remarry?
3. Sarah daughter of E.C. is living with her father. Her husband Charles probably died.
4. Georgiana daughter to E.C. and her husband are living with them.
5. Bella (could be short for Ruble?) born November 12, 1863 does not show up on the 1870 census but shows up on the 1880 census. DOB matches.
6. Aleck and Adolph – DOB matches but names different. Same person?
7. Sidney – did he die?
8. One 1880 census (book form) listed E.C. age as 50 but after reviewing the original census I believe it’s a 6 instead a 0 at the end of his age. Therefore his age would be 56.

Note: 1. J.B. and E.C. are brothers. Cora Pradat Tebault and her family are living with her uncle. It appears the J.B. and Louisa did not have any children.

With the two different sources the above and below information we can make a tie in. Eugene middle name in different on the censuses but in those days it’s not uncommon to have 3 or 4 names plus the surname.
