I have been able to capture every census for Mounsey (Munsey) LITTLE......  from 1861 & 1871 in England as a young man and 1880 -1940 in United States plus two New York State Census 1892 & 1926. He was a butcher with a retail Meat Shop and then became a farmer. According to the census, Mounsey and Mary had 4 children (3 boys and 1 girl). Sons Isaac and Joseph helped in the meat market. His wife Mary passed away in 1929 [big thanks for NY State 1926 census], and by 1930 US Census Mounsey had moved in with his daughter's family.

In 1920 my mother, Mary Jane Little, was born and was moved in with her aunt and uncle. They are all together on the 1920 US Census.[not shown here] Then on the 1930 US Census when Mounsey as a widower moved in with his son in law and daughter my mother and another nephew were part of the family group.

Need to look at a marriage record for Mounsey and Mary (Brownrigg) Little approximately 1878. first child was born 1878.

AND, Mounsey arrived in America in 1872 .....   so he was not on the 1870 US Census but first shows on the 1880 US Census........ And he died in July 1940, and the 1940 Census was taken in April.........  so he was captured during his last year.
