Notes

  • Carmen is first reported in Montana where she was born, in the 1920census.  Form her age here we can determine that her parents moved toMontana sometime in about 1915.

    Carmen, along with her whole family, was reported in the Montanacensus, in the household of her maternal grandparents.  But then theywere again enumerated in their previous home of Frederick, Oklahoma,before the end of January 1920.  Since Carmen was born in Montana, itappears they had all moved to Montana in about 1916, then Jim andAmanda must have made a trip back after the January 2 enumeration ofthe Carpenter-Briscoe farm in Musselshell County, Montana.  Theyarrived before the census taker made it to their street in Frederick,and were enumerated again there.

    A complicating factor for this scenario is that the next child Helenwas also born in the same Montana county in July of 1920.  Also theywere not enumerated in someone else's household, but are reportingrenting their residence in Frederick.  So their presence in Oklahomaless than one month after they were enumerated in Montana is not fullyexplained.  Maybe they were just back for a visit, whatever theirhousing situation.  For whatever reason, they were back in Montanabefore the birth of the next child Helen in July 1920.

    There is a difference of one year in the reported age of Carmen inthese two censuses taken the same month.  It appears the Frederick,Oklahoma, version is correct, in light of other factors.  Note thereported birth date in her death record, matching the Oklahoma agereport, with birth in 1917.  Her age in the 1930 census also supportsthe 1917 date.

    They later moved from Montana to Minnesota, between 1921 and 1926, thebirth years of their next two children, Helen and Bernard.  They wereback in Frederick, Oklahoma, for the 1930 census.
