    George has aged only 7 years in this census.  The age discrepanciesshow up for all this family.  According to his age in this census,George would have turned 15 after this census.  However, the familygenealogy cited above reports his birth date was 15 April 1845.  Ifthat birth date is correct, then he was already 15 before the Julycensus date.  This is still two years off from the 1850 age reported.

    George was incorrectly transcribed in the 1900 census, and I did notfind it until after the 1910 census.  But information in the 1910census provided clues, which turned up George and his first wife SarahP in 1900.  The names of their children helped fill out the familypicture.  Four sons are reported here.  By 1900 George and his firstwife have been married 34 years.

    Family sources tell us Jean is a nickname for a son named Eugene.  In1910, George had lost Sarah and has only his son Tom remaining in thehousehold.  His son Jean is next door.

    There was a wife between the censuses known by family tradition, andthe presence of an adopted daughter in the 1930 census.  In 1920,George is with his third wife Emma Kinard, widow of Edward CalisteDumond.  The adopted daughter known as Anna Belle, is not with them,and I have not found her in 1920.  But in 1930 she is with her widowedstep-mother Emma at age 16.  Thus she should have been about 6 yearsold in 1920

    George married Emma Kinard Dumond in October 1913.  So the second wifedied before that time.  Anna Belle could have been born earlier in1913, and perhaps her mother died in childbirth.
