    Rufus' birth date reported in this 1900 census is 3 years earlier thanthe birth date on his grave.  While the census reported him born inJune 1880, the grave says it was 30 Jan 1883.  The 1930 census reportsthat Rufus married Gertrude at age 23.  The known date of the marriageis 15 February 1905.  This would put his birth in 1881 or as late asJanuary 1882.  His birthday is reported by family sources to be inJanuary (1883), so January 1882 seems to fit the census reports andages consistently. The 1910 census age matches birth in 1883.  He alsoreports his birth date as 30 January 1883 on his draft registration.

    According to family sources in genealogies, Gertrude's name order wasLorella Gertrude, although in the 1920 census Gertrude is her mainname and entered first with the L middle initial.  The states of birthreported indicates that Rufus and Gertrude moved south over the RedRiver into Texas for 2-3 years around 1909-11, where Lorene was born.

    The 1920 and 1930 censuses report that Lorene was born in Texas.Interestingly, family sources report she was born in Lindsay,Oklahoma.  This is probably by analogy with the other children andtheir family's longtime residence in Lindsay.  Both the 1920 and 1930census show them living in Grady County locations west of Lindsay, notin Garvin County, for this period.  (The Garvin County line, however,is just a mile west of the Lindsay city limit.)

    In 1930, no middle initials are included in the enumerations.  Thereported state of birth changes for both Rufus and Gertrude.
