    The older children reported here as Black are Annie Sijmpson Watson Black's children named Watson from her first marriage.  The last two children reported as Watson stepsons are actually named Black, being Jesse's children with his first wife, Lillian Toler, as reported in the 1930 census.  This multi-blended family confused the enumerator
