Source: “United States Census, 1850,” index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MZY2-8QW : accessed 21 April 2015), T H Randall, Buckhead, DeKalb, Georgia, United States; citing family 57, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).

While the 1850 Census record is very light, and therefore difficult to read, most of it is legible. However, it appears to contain two errors. First, it appears to list Hardy's middle initial as a “J.” rather than an “I”. And second, the last person listed, while not named, is suspected to have been Penelope Randall… whose tombstone states her birth date as Oct. 15, 1849.9) So she would have 13 months old at the time of the census.
