I recently found the following information in the 1870 census.

1870 Census, Hancock MS
Seal, Andrew 58 M W
Elizabeth 48 F W
William 22 M W
Chesau 15 F W
Eli 14 M W
Elizabeth 12 F W
Edmund 12 M W

There was a Wm Seal 55 M W & his family about 4 households from Andrew.

I also found the following on the 1880 census.

1880 Census - Fifth Ward Washington parish LA

William SEAL Self M Male W 35 MS Farmer GA MS
Angeline SEAL Wife M Female W 20 LA Keeping House PRU MS
Henry A SEAL Son S Male W 1 LA MS LA

Next door:
Andrew SEAL Self M Male W 60 GA Farmer GA SC
Elizabeth SEAL Wife M Female W 50 MS Keeping House SC SC
Eli SEAL Son S Male W 26 MS At Home GA MS
Susan A. SEAL Dau S Female W 23 MS At Home GA MS
Elizabeth SEAL Dau S Female W 20 MS At Home GA MS
Edmond SEAL Son S Male W 19 LA At Home GA MS

I'm having problems finding Andrew Seal in the 1860 census. Any additional information about this family will be appreciated.

Thanks.

I am also working on Seal and Leslie of MS and LA.
My wife is daughter of Mattie Seal b. 11 Jun 1902 m. John Thornton Hariel b. Oct 1895. Mattie was last daughter of Georgw Washington Seal b. Oct 1848 and Mary E. Leslie b. Feb 1859.

I recently found information on Gencircles.com where April Gill Page has posted her file "Seal/Seale and Allied Families of MS/LA. It has some info on Andrew.

I do point out that in the case on George Washington Seal, the file showed middle name Israel. He may have had 2 middle names. It showed as reference the 1900 Pearl River Co.,MS Census, which shows George W.

Hope it helps

Charles

I found Silas Leslie in the 1850 census.

He's in Beat 2, Hancock co. MS and he's in the following household:
209 215 Amos Seal 30 M Farmer Hancock Co., MS
Christine Seal 25 F Hancock Co., MS
William Seal 5 M Hancock Co., MS
George Seal 4 M Hancock Co., MS
Daniel Seal 1/12 M Hancock Co., MS
Silas Seal 20 M GA

This was one of several Seal households living next to each other. .

Ok. I found them. I think I overlooked it the first time because the census taker did such a horrible job. Whoever did the index for Ancestry said D. Seals instead of A. Seals and I can understand why. Horrible handwriting. (bad as mine!).

Thanks for the tips!
