    Note that Zilpah's name has changed here to Zilpha.  The first is thenormal biblical spelling of this Hebrew name.  The latter could be asimple transposition, a spelling mistake, but could also indicate ashift in pronunciation from p to F sound after the L.  Later we findit as Zelpha and Zelphia, though that could be a misreading of Zilphaor Zilphia.

    Note that the Stinson son's given name is written here as Milliam.  Itmust be intended to be William, and the enumerator either wrote isthoughtlessly as an M, or his loops for the W are curved strangely anddifferently than other Ws on the page, included a William in theprevious household.

    Shelly Cloud's genealogy reports information that identifies the childWilliam in the 1880 census.  Shelly tells us that Zilpah marriedWilliam A Stinson in 1875.   Their son William was born in 1876.  Theenumerator erred in reporting her as Single.  She was actuallydivorced from William Stinson.  This census has no designation fordivorced, offering only Single, Married or Widowed.  I guess Singlewas the closest.  The surname is also wrong, since Zilpah's last name,as well as William's, is Stinson at this time.

    Shelly reports her date of death, and her full name as:
    Zelphia Canzada Green (1851-1940)

    The 1900 census reports that Zilpah has borne only 1 child, and thatwould be William A Stinson, son of her first husband, in the Lewishousehold.  If this report is correct, that means that Zilpah has hadno children in the 24 years since William was born, no children withher current and second husband Lloyd Lewis.

    There are two Stinson hosueholds later on the same page, headed byJohn, age 61, and Cynthia, age 56.

    Lewis, Lloaid Head Rents M W 73 Married at age 21 AL AL AL Farmer
    Lewis, Zilpha Wife F W 76 Married at age 24 AL SC SC

    Zilpah's age at first marriage would place the marriage in 1875,matching the marriage to William Stinson in 1875.  There is a Stinsonfamily next door to the Lewis couple.  The head of this household isCharlie, age 44.
