Moses Broadus


 
                              1840 Jackson County MS Census

The earliest information that I have on Moses Broadus is from the Jackson County Mississippi 1840 Census.  This census shows Moses Broadus on page 277.
The census for Moses BRODUS household is as follows:
Males: 
Under 5, 2; 
5 & under 10,1;
10 & under 15, 1;
15 & under 20, 1;
20 & under 30, 1;
40 & under 50, 1;
60 & under 70, 1.
Females:
Under 5, 1;
30 & under 40,1.
For some reason the census taker has a total of 8,  I get a total of 10 when I add his count.
