I had seen transcriptions of Thomas McClurken for the 1800 US Census; however, I had never seen the actual image. So I decided to look again using HertitageQuest. After trying all the variations of the spelling of the last name, I decided to look for persons in Chester County South Carolina named Thomas. Although it found 69, it was immediately apparent which was correct.
The last name is obscured in the image; however, his brother, Matthew appears directly below and the last name is complete. To view the image, see 1800 US Census line 2. To appreciate the data, it is necessary to view a blank form with the column headings; see 1800 Blank Form. This information will be added to the biography for Thomas in the near future.
