Hello, thanks for the above. I've clicked on the freecen link but don't know how to search. Any suggestions please on how to search.

Marian - FYI
Just last week FreeCEN completed the 1861 transcription for Co Durham.
I think FreeCEN's transcriptions are generally more accurate than FS, Ancestry or FMP. I also like to copy and paste their h/h displays, and the ability to click thru adjacent h/h's. The down-side is their coverage is quite spotty overall.

Thanks Pam, unfortunately this isn't the right family. I've tried all sorts of combinations but cannot find them in 1861. I have them on all the others. Thanks for looking.

Hello, the second post right at the beginning of this thread shows a reference for Joseph on the 1861 census, but then says go to FMP to see the image. Could someone take a look and list the rest of the family and address on the 1861 census so I can put this part of the family to "bed" - thank you.

That last posting has dropped some of the information - the marriage posted was in 1877.

This is the rest of the household it's lost:

Joseph H Race 13
Edward W Race 8
Laverne E Race 1(Grand-daughter)

John Readmas 22 Readman on original, arrived USA 1909, could be some relation to Maria?

Anne Race is their daughter-in-law, married to Thomas.

Hi Marian, that is assuming the 1881 census posted by GB is the right one. We don't know for sure
