Born Too Soon

This weekend, I was searching mid-1800's US census records, trying to make new family line connections. On a first name only search, this gentleman and his family showed up, completely unrelated but nevertheless, made me smile.

 1860 US Census: Illinois, Will County, Village of Lockport, p 17, lines 1-7

John Blog, 34, day labor, born in England

It's probably a stretch to think his "day laboring" was writing, huh?!
