Notes

  • We get the full first name of W E Padgett in the 1870 Census, where heis listed as William, although the middle initial there looks like Cinstead of E.  In the Padgett line of Arkansas County, the nameWilliam, or Willey, and the initials W E are repeated through thegenerations.

    While in 1900, William and his family are not shown in anyincorporated part of Lamar Township, in 1910, they are reported in thetown of Plainview, living on East Border Road.  In 1910 and 1920,William's trade is photography.

    The child reported as Lewis O in 1900 is now reported as Oliver, whichindicates that his name is Lewis Oliver.  Bonnie was a son in 1900,but now reported as a daughter.   This is the correct report,according to Bonnie's granddaughter Peggy Mayo Norman.

    The birth state of Theodocia's father has changed from South Carolinato North Carolina to match her mother.  Ages change also.  Note thatWilliam's age is 10 years greater, but Theodocia has gained from age29 to age 45, a gain of 15 years!  Oliver has gained only 9 years eventhough his birthday is supposed to have been in February.

    Here William E is now reported as a photographer.  They must still owntheir farm. since their son Eugene E sis still reported as a FarmLaborer as in 1900.  you will note that their son Lewis Oliver is alsoreported as a Farm Laborer.

    Note also that Eugene E is reported as married for one year, yet thereis no wife in this household.  On page 6A of the same census in YellCounty, we find Eugene is enumerated again 3 days later with his wifeLula.  They are also in Plainview town, living on Balloon Road.  Theoccupation of Eugene here is consistent with that under his father'shousehold, but here, Eugene is reported as a Farmer (not just a FarmLaborer), even though he is living in town.

    Notice that the number of years William and Theodocia have beenmarried do not match in the two censuses.  The 1910 census was takenin April, and reports that they have been married 23 years.  Yet the1900 census was taken in June, and said they were married 12 years.It should have been either 9 or 10 more years in 1910, but it is 11years greater since the 1900 census, even though it is not quite 10calendar years later.
