    • Record for: Thomas Allen:

      2 free white male(s) under 5: James F. Allen (2/3) and Wallace Allen (0/1)
      1 free white male(s) age 10-15: unknown
      1 free white male(s) age 15-20: unknown
      1 free white male(s) age 20-30: Thomas Allen? (s/b 36-37)

      1 free white female(s) under 5: (unknown)
      2 free white female(s) age 5-10: Minerva J. Allen (6/7) and unknown
      1 free white female(s) age 30-40: Eleanor (Walker) Allen (36/37)

      Total: 9

      It is possible Thomas was simply put in the wrong column on the census form; it may be he was left off. It would seem possibl he and Eleanor may have had up to two other children (1 male age 10-15, 1 female under 5, and 1 female 10-15) but it doesn't seem likely the male aged 15-20 would have been theirs. Eleanor's siblings, Francis, John, and Rebecca Walker were still under 21 and not listed on the census image with the family patriarch, George. Rebecca would have been age 14/15, Francis age 20/21, and John age 18/19, so none of them really seem to fit into this mystery.
