I believe there is an enumeration district that was missed in the 1920 census that contains a few of my ancestors and their peers. I am concerned about the Township of Kennady in Le Flore County, Oklahoma. The enumeration district for Kennady Township was 0017 and 40-19 in 1930 and 1940, respectively.
I'm not sure what the best source is for enumeration district descriptions, but per Ancestry here they are:
The following link provides the 1930 Enumeration District Map for Kennady Township (I could not find the 1920 equivalent):
I have outlined some of the relevant landmarks/boundaries as best as possible. The regions above and below the yellow line represent township 7 and 6, respectively. The regions east and west of the blue line represents range 24 E and 23 E, respectively.
Cross-referencing the ED descriptions and the 1930s ED map, it appears that T 7 N, R 23 E is missing, along with a considerable proportion of the Kennady Township's population. I have searched the border townships/counties' enumeration district descriptions (again on Ancestry) and could not find T 7 N, R 23 E.
My questions are (in order of importance):
This is a brick wall that has plagued my research for nearly a decade. I truly appreciate any insight or ideas on how I should approach this.
