    The birth states are confused on both the 1920 and 1930 censuses.  In1920 and 1930, Margaret Black is reported as born in North Carolina.But her children's reports all report the mother born in SouthCarolina.  Oliver is reported in 1920 as born in South Carolina, butin 1930 it is North Carolina.  In 1880 his birth state was reported asSouth Carolina.  Does this mean that some or all of Margaret'schildren were the children of a first husband, not Oliver?  Birthdates of the children seem to rule this out.

    Note that the enumerator, when he wrote the birth state for Winfred asSC, got carried away and repeated SC for both parents, though he hadjust written NC for his father's record.  Several children in thiscensus are children of Frances Victoria Randall, who was born in SouthCarolina. so their mother's birth state is correct.
