Today I sourced the census records of the Daniel King family in the 1860 & 1870 census of Monroe Twp., Madison Co., IN. Daniel is my maternal 3rd great-grandfather.
In both records, Daniel is a farmer, with real estate valued at $4000 in 1860 and $14,500 in 1870, with a personal estate worth $1375 in 1860 and $6031 by 1870. His birthplace is listed as Indiana in 1860 and Ohio in 1870. His birthplace is given on his son David's 1900 census record as Maryland and in 1910 as North Carolina. Obviously, the fact that Daniel died so young (1876), many of his children were not sure just where their father was born.
