John's record makes little sense.  Where are his wife and children?  Where is he?  Is he the free-colored male?  Listed one line below John's brother, Shadrach, and one line above John's father, Benjamin, who is two lines above John's brother, Jesse, who is one line above John's brother, James.  Benjamin is enumerated as white, but his four sons are enumerated as free colored.
