    Stroud, Bertha Dau  F W 6 Single TX TX TX
    Stroud, Lela (?) Dau  F W 10 Single TX TX TX

    James' mother lives next door with her second husband Rev WilliamChenault.  I see James and Laura's daughter Bertha was born in Texasabout 1903, so they came to Oklahoma as plans were underway to mergeseveral Indian Nations with Oklahoma Territory to form the new stateof Oklahoma in 1907.  James' wife Laura is reported as having borne 2children but only one is living, yet two children are reported as hisdaughters.  And the last one, Lela (? name is hard to read) is 10years old, while James and Laura have been married only 7 years.  Alsothe older child is listed after the younger daughter, usually a signof different parentage.  So James was previously married.

    Chenault, William M  Head M W  59  Married 7 yrs TX MS TX Farmer Rents

    Chenault, Asbry Son  M W 15 Single TX TN AL Farm Labor
    Stroud, Jay H Labor [sic] M W 28 Single TX TN AL Farm Labor

    The enumerator has spelled the initials J H as the name Jay H, forJohn Henry Stroud.  This is Mollie Stroud's son, so it is interestinghe was listed simply as a Laborer, rather than a stepson of William.Notice that John (Jay) is reported as being born in Tennessee, as theChenault sons, although John was born in Texas.
