    The entry for the child Beaufort is difficult to decipher.  There is an entry and a writover in the designation for both Son-Daughter and Male-Female.  The problem is, it is difficult to tell which was original and which is the writeover correction.  I read it as Dauighter and Female, despite the male name Beaufort.

    1910 Federal Census, Armstrong County, Texas, 18 April, Goodnight, District 7, page 1A, Hse/Fam #4
    Black, Sam H Head M W 50 Married 30 years TX TN OH Farmer Owns
    Black, Mary  Wife F W 48 Married 30 years 10 children/8 living MS AL GA
    Black, Alfred Son M W 20 TX TX MS
    Black, Lloyd Son M W 18 TX TX MS
    Black, Buford Son M W 15 OK TX MS
    Black, Orville Son M W 15 OK TX MS
    Black, Earl Son M W 15 OK TX MS
    Black, Velma Dau F W 10 OK TX MS

    The child designated as the son Buford in 1910 matches the daughter Beaufort in the 1900 census.  When I saw Beaufort designated as a daughter I thought this strange, since that is a boy's name.  It appears to be corrected now with the designation of Buford as the son.  Further documentation will help us determine if the name of this son was Buford or Beaufort.  I suspected it was Buford.

    However the confirming evidence goes the other direction, when in 1930 we see Beaufort Wallace in the household designated as a daughter, divorced, with a child.  Thus Beaufort appears to be the correct form of the name, and the 1900 census entry corrected to read Daughter and Female, is the correct 1900 reading.

    There were no chuildren in their home in 1920.
