There was no Slingslow District

Whoever indexed the 1840 Livingston County, Kentucky census for confused a lot of researchers. According to, there were three districts in 1840 Livingston County - Salem, Smithland and Swingslow - but if you enlarge the name written along the left side of the page for the last district, it is evident that it says Livingston and not Swingslow. I've reported this error to in the past and just reported it again. Let's hope it gets corrected this time.

Bottom line - there was no Swingslow district. The word should be Livingston.

Brenda-I was just checking on trying to find Swingslow today after seeing William Adamson listed there in 1840....apparently it hasn't been corrected yet!
