    In the 1910 census, the daughter matching Emma is reported as Anna..Note the discrepancy of age reports for Adolph from 1900 to 1920.  Hegains only 7 years.

    Next door to Adolph is another Garot family, all born in Belgium.  Thehead of the household is Leon, matching the name of cathnerine GarotGirerd's oldest son.  There seems to be only 13 years between theirages, so it seems likely this is an older brother of Adolph.Immigration records indicate that Leon immigrated in 1884, the sameyear as Adolph, strengthening the indicaiion of family ties.  Leon wasnaturalized in 1892, 11 years before Adolph (se below).

    The birth places of Adolph's children tell us about when they moved toArkansas.  The 1910 census reports the daughter Arline (Aline in 1920)was born in Louisiana abt 1906..  But the 1920 census says she wasborn in Arkansas.   From other family informaiton (see Jean Girerd) itappears the birthplace in Arkansas would be correct for Aline(Arline?), not Louisiana.  Their son Victor was born in Louisiana abt1901 or 1902.  So we can say Adolph moved his family to LaGrue,Arkansas County, between late 1901 1906.

    Aline is reported out of order if her age is correct.  Note that allthe children are reported as having parents who wee both born inBelgium.  But Adolph's wife here was born in Louisiana.  If this iscorrect, it means that Lagnine is not their mother, but theirstepmother.  This may also be an enumerator error.  But the 1930census below clarifies this by reporting the mother of all thechldlren born in Louisiana, matcher Adolph's wife.

    The census above reports that information about Adolph's immigrationand naturalizaton is unknown.  I found his naturalization recordonline at Ancestry.com.  He was naturalized on 2 March 1903.  One ofthe witnesses was his brother-in-law Jean F Girerd (whose name wasrecorded in this record as Jean S Girard).  Another witness was oneNuma Mouton, with the surname of Theresa Girerd's husband, Francis EMouton.  In the 1930 census, there are Moutons living near Adolph.

    The 1930 census corrects the birthplace problem, reporteing MarieL[agnine] as born in Louisiana, and the mother of the three chidlrenalso born in Louisiana.  This seems to indicate that Marie is indeedthe mother of these children, and the 1920 report of their mother'sbirth in Belgium was an enumerator error.
