Census Fun!

Something I stumbled across by accident....one of those many little things you run across in the course of genealogical research:



This is no relation to me, but look at this...from the 1880 Census....in Flint, Michigan....notice the girl Jenny Abertheny who is listed as "no relation" to the head of the household. Her occupation? Prostitute.
Jenny's husband's occupation? "Miserable loafer."
