Looking for brick wall help.

+2 votes

I am looking for some help with a brick wall for my 2G-Grandmother.  She married Zachariah Hardin Ream in Wapello County, Iowa on 3 Jul 1866. The record is here... Marriage record.  It shows her name as Caroline A. Cantore.

An Arizona death certificate for their son shows her name as Caroline Cantov.

My primary interest is an 1860 US Census record I found which I believe to be hers. 1860 Census  She is on line 32.  Family search has her surname transcribed as Cantons but it would be the only uncrossed "t" on the page. Ancestry has the same record transcribed as Caulors but I don't buy that either comparing it to other entries on the page.  

None of these surname possibilities get me anywhere.  Does anyone see anything else as a possible surname?

Also, is there an LDS member able to view the marriage record to see if the transcription is accurate?  Her LDS ID is LHCS-2KD.

Looks like Caulons in Census (using my indexing eye) I would need to look at  this census takers other pages to see what she  tended to do with other names that ended with ns . The spelling also makes me think of the name Collins.. Do you know her nationality?

The enumerators "n" and "u" are almost identical.  Look at "Eugene" on the line above, "Ann" on line 38 and "June" on line 21. There is not much consistency.   I have looked over several pages in both directions and see a couple of "ns" endings but none look like this.

1860 Census shows Saxony as birthplace. 1870 shows Illinois which is incorrect. 1880 shows Germany.

Typed as Cantov
