LITTLE'S are my Mothers Fathers side..................
I was not able to find a 1831 United Kingdom census but here are the 1841-1851- & 1861 which seems to account for all 10 children over the years.............. but a closer look shows that JAMES (1848-1855) does not appear on any of the census and he should have appeared only on the 1851. Big question, what happened? I need to go back to the original document and see if I left him off or he was on the another page.

I have been told that Mounsey came to America as a young man in 1872. (I have found him in the 1880 through the 1940 US Census- note census was taken in April 1940 and Mounsey died in July 1940)
**I did locate Joseph married in the 1881 UK Census but not sure about the 1871 except he might have been a servant- I found a couple of single men about the right age from the right area of England but not sure. I searched the 1891 UK Census and did not find him - I would have thought that the last 2 sons and maybe all three would have been listed under their parents in 1891 but did not find them YET.
