One More Name Butchering From 1860

This is my 3rd great-grandmother from the 1860 Census in Adams County, Illinois, where the two previous entries were taken.


  1. hmmmm..tough one. but I'll start somewhere ; )
    Frustia Baums??

  2. Those are close to what I think he meant...

  3. This one is really difficult as the person's actual name was Trientje Behrens. I think the enumerator meant to write Fruitia Barms. That's partially based on the handwriting and partially based upon how the family likely said their last name.
