Censuswhacking for Halloween

Time again to search the 1880 U.S. census for strange and unique names—this time with a Halloween theme.

In one particular town, the residents considered anything Sweet Good, and the Miner was considered an especially Sweet Guy. That is until they found out he was making Sweet Luv to all the neighborhood women.

Sweet Justice.
