    This census tells us George married Clarice about 1926.  The actualrecords reports the marriage date as 10 January 1926.  On the marriagelicense Clarice's name is written oddly, then a shoddy write-overattempts to correct the name to Clarice.  It has been interpretedseveral ways.

    Note the great difference in George's age and birth year between 1900and the group 1910-1940.  In general I usually think the age given inearlier censuses (nearer the birth) are more accurate.  But the birthdates and ages vary wildly with these Tennessee families in this era.Social Security records (see below) report George's birth date as 17Oct 1892, which woudl accomodate all the censuses except 1900.

    But in 1900 he is 12 years old, with birth date Nov 1887.  Did hisparents mistake an 8-year-old for a 12-year-old?  Or maybe theenumerator heard wrongly and did not look to see if the child looked12?  In the 1940 census, George's reported age of 46 would place hisbirth in about 1892.
