thanks, yes, but is it uncommon for two entries to be the same person on consecutive pages?
John W Maughon: 1880 Census, Gwuinett Co, GA:
Page 2 - listed as james with wife Mary O, the children match the 1900 Census of John and wife Octavia
Page 3 - listed as John with wife Octavia, but there are no children which match the 1900 census data.
John does have a brother named james, but the wife is telitha or something like that.
it just doesn't fit in my head...
