Curious if anyone could point me to a mid-1800s vintage dictionary, or some other source that explains the connotation of some of the terminology used then. For example, I have census records in which one ancestor states his occupation as "Huckster" and another whose occupation is "Tinner." I've looked up the words, but I'm not sure the modern definitions apply. And in the 1870 census sheets, there's a column labeled "Whether deaf, dumb, blind, insane, or idiotic." One family's grown child has the word "Idiot" entered in that column. Is that likely to be an actual medical diagnosis, or just his mother's opinion? I'm sure there are many more examples. Thanks.
