WARNING:  There is something very wrong with the 1870 census of Hardeman Co., TN, over and above the sloppy handwriting and the omission of given names.  The pages are out of order, not just the stamped page numbers, but the handwritten Page Nos. as well.  Plus, the visitation numbers have been written over, possibly in someone's misguided attempt to make the pages appear to "fit."  So, be cautious with any situation where you have a family bridging two pages.  Make certain putting the pages together makes sense and, if not, scan the pages for the one that does.  Below, I've pieced these two pages together based on what is known about the families.

One of James's sisters married a McFARLANE, so J.C. McFARLANE is most likely A nephew.  R. PARRENT is James's sister, Rowena (CROCKER) PARRENT.
