I Think My Ancestor Was In Prison. Have I Lost The Research Trail?

No. I can't say that every prisoner is listed, but the census records in the US and UK do list if the individual is an "inmate".

And don't worry about placing their name and situation in your family tree. It's not you, and it's part of their history. Before DNA and more competent testing, people were convicted of many things by heresay.
