Every so often, something on the census will tickle me. In this case, it is the 1880 census. There are a lot of things about this census that make me wonder, such as marital status of someone who is listed as widowed, but I know his wife is still alive and living in the District of Columbia. But that isn't what tickles me. It's his occupation: Capitalist!
