    I note that this census reports that Virgil and Josephine have beenmarried for 35 years!  That would mean they married about 1865.  Butin the 1870 and 1880 censuses, we know that his wife was Sarah H.  Ageand birth details confirm this is a different person.  But we see inthe 1910 census, that this is a second marriage for both Virgil andJosephine.  So perhaps the 35 refers to the total time, from the firstmarriage for both of them.  This would match the marriage date forVirgil and Sarah.

    Tressie Nealy reports that Virgil Weathers married Josephine Williams24 Jan 1887.

    1910 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 21 April, PrairieTownship, District 13, page 3B, Hse/Fam #44
    Weathers, Virgil  Head M W 68 Marriage 2 Married 24 years TN TN TNRailroad Engineer Rents [b abt 1873]

    Weathers, Robert Son M W 16 Single AR SC Michigan Farm Laborer [b abt1894]
    Weathers, John H Son M W 14 Single AR SC Michigan Farm Laborer [b abt1896]

    Note that the 1900 and 1910 censuses report that Josephine has had 6children, and only 3 are living.  All I have seen records for are two,Robert and John, recorded in the censuses of 1900 and 1910.  Thisrecord also reports that Virgil and Josephine have been married for 24years, meaning they married about 1886.  If there were three childrensurviving, then there should have been at least those 3 recorded inthe 1900 census, when Robert was 7 and John was 4.  An older childwould be at most 14 in 1900, but more likely about 13.

    Tressie Nealy, a Weathers researcher, informed me that Virgil Weathersdied on/about 15 Aug 1916.
