So, you have searched census records, marriage records, and land records. You have found your ancestor in one census record but not the next. And, in a marriage record but not a land record.

Have you checked for different spellings of that last name? The recorder of the information may not have spelled the last name the way that you would spell it! Do you realize how many ways I have found “Champion” spelled? And, my maiden name is Bryan!
