Hi Barbara,

Those that are currently paying ancestry.com for membership will be able to take a look at your link.

Same image at FamilySearch.

Thanks Herbert!

The little "u" is only used in rows where a column is skipped.  I think it is a place-holder to indicate that there is no data for that column.

I believe the "u" stands for unknown.   It's used mostly in the "Free white females <16" and the All other free persons columns

That's an interesting idea.  Sounds reasonable, thank you, Bob!

And thank you all for reminding me that FAMILYSSEARCH would have been a better link!!!  Am just getting used to using it regularly.
