    Abraham Huddleston York was married to a woman named Laura in the 1970census, with their first child born only in April of that year.  In aYork Family genalogy I found the name and marriage info, butundocumented.  I have not found a record.  Huddleston's two wives mayhave been sisters or cousins.

    York, Laura 27 F W Keeping House born GA [b abt 1843]
    York, William 3mos M W Farmer born GA April 1870

    The oldest information on the commonly-reported family of AbrahamHuddleston York and Emma Louise Wozencraft family was the 1880 census. The oldest child Thomas is listed last, normally indicating the childof a previous wife.  The 1900 census confirms this, reporting thatHuddleston and Emma have been married 26 years, that is, they marriedabout 1874, about 3 years after Thomas was born and one year beforeBersaba was born.  Thomas in the 1880 census matches William of the1870 census.

    1880 Federal Census, Paulding County, Georgia, 3 June, Eutah District1207, Enumeration District 157, page 9, Hse #69, Fam #71
    York, Huddleston W M 35 Head Works on Farm GA TN TN [b abt 1845]
    York, Emma W F 26 Wife Keeping House GA GA GA [b abt 1854]
    York, Bershaba  W F 5 Dau Single GA GA GA [b abt 1875]
    York, Olivia W M 4 Dau Single GA GA GA [b abt 1876]
    York, Lena  W M 2 Dau Single GA GA GA [b abt 1878]
    York, Mary W M 1mo Dau Single GA GA GA [b abt Apr 1880]
    York, Thomas W M 9 Son Single GA GA GA [b abt 1871]
    York, Virginia W M 29 Sister Single GA TN TN [b abt 1851]
    Hoff, William W M [can't read age] Boarder Married Miner [no birthstate info]

    Since the oldest child, Thomas, is listed last, he is likely the childof a previous wife.  This is the normal pattern of listing incensuses.  This would be Laura reported in the 1870 census.  Thatwould mean that Huddleston's first wife Laura died between 1871 and1874, allowing about a year before Bershaba's birth in about 1875.

    1900 Federal Census, Polk County, Georgia, 8 June, Van Wert Village,District 80, page 7A,  Hse/Fam #137
    York, Abraham H Head  W M Jan 1843 57 Married 26 years GA KY TN FarmerOwns [married about 1874]

    York, Huddie P Dau W M Jan 1891 9 Single GA GA GA
    Simpson, Charles W Boarder W M July 1864 35 Single GA GA GA

    If we look closer we will see that this Thomas is the same childreported as William in the 1870 census.  William was reported born inApril 1970.  Later censuses report Thomas' ages consistent with birthin 1970 or 1871.  Later censuses confirm this further, when he issometimes listed as William T or Tom W, and either single name.
