Have you ever had the address of where your ancestor lived, but were unable to find the address in the census?

One time when researching, I discovered that one side of the road was in one “town” and the other side of the road was in the “neighboring town” – the official boundary went down the middle of the road! So, to find out who was living on the road, it was necessary to look at census records for two different towns!
