    The entry for the child Beaufort is difficult to decipher.  There isan entry and a writover in the designation for both Son-Daughter andMale-Female.  The problem is, it is difficult to tell which wasoriginal and which is the writeover correction.  I read it asDauighter and Female, despite the male name Beaufort.

    The son Buford in 1910 matches the daughter Beaufort in 1900.  When Isaw Beaufort designated as a daughter I thought this strange, sincethat is a boy's name.  It appears to be corrected now with thedesignation of Buford as the son.  Further documentation will help usdetermine if the name of this son was Buford or Beaufort.

    But the confirming evidence goes the other direction, when in 1930 wesee Beaufort Wallace in the household designated as a daughter,divorced, with a child.  Thus Beaufort appears to be the correct formof the name, and the 1900 census entry corrected to read Daughter andFemale, is the correct 1900 reading.
