First of all I need some help understanding what you have written:

"...When I typed in her Fathers Name ***** ***** born 1859 the 1860 census came up showing he was 1 year old and his fathers name was Ozwell Smith born 1875 England. There are many Ozwell Smith in England. We have to have the Town for additional help....

If ***** ***** were born in 1859, his father could not have been born in 1875 (i.e. 17 years afterwards).

Then the second time you wrote:

"... I will type it again I was tring to trace bac mt Mothers family and I enter her father ***** ***** born 1859 . The 1860 census came up showing he was 1 Year ld. It showed his father was Ozwell Sith born 1850 in England. that was great until I tried to Ttrace but there are many Ozwll Smith bon n 1850. I need the town...."

Also, if ***** ***** was 1 in the 1860 census (i.e. born 1859), his father could not have been in 1850 because a 9 year old cannot father a child.

Let's start over. We have plenty of time.

Where did you find ***** ***** in the 1860 census?

Was his mother with the family? Did he have siblings?

Who did Walter marry, when and where?

What is his middle name?
