I have a gap in Orrick/Arrick family history in 1870. They appear in 1850,1860 in Warren as ORRICKs, then in 1880 in Coffee as ARRICKs.
Some of the 1870 Warren census page are very dim, both at and the microfilm at my local library. I’m wondering if they are hiding in there. Are there better copies somewhere?
1860 in Warren shows Orricks: Jno 1826, Margaret 1830, Sarah 1848, James 1851, Laura 1853, Willaim 1855, Vetes (E.V) 1857, Margaret 1859.
