    Seeking 1870 census information for JC Claibern/Claiborn

      I have been attempting to track down the 1850/60/70 census records for JC Claibern.  I believe that there could be an entry in the 1870 Census, in Escambia, Arkansas, where there is a Claiborn listed in the household of "Alleck Watherford." However, notes on the census said that Watherford refused to answer any questions, and to "see letter from AGM(sp?), Nov 4, 70."  Would this letter or a possible template exist of what would have been in the letter? I believe it could be in "29.2.1 Records of the 4th through 9th Censuses (1820-70)" "Microfilm Publications: T1224." (He and his family do appear in the 1880 Census in Hood County, Texas, but almost all of the other J Claiborn's in the 1870 census also have a counterpart in the 1880 census so this seems to be the best chance of being the right person).
