    --  Scott Hayes,

    Interestingly, this genealogy has no date of death for Melvina, buther husband Marion Boatman is reported as a widow in the 1900 census,where he is living with her parents.  So we know Melvina died before1900.  Marion is reported in this census as a Lodger, rather than aSon-in-law.

    Melvina and Marion had one child, apparently, who is reported in hisgrandparents household in 1910, as Willie Boatman, age 11, making himborn about 1899.  I have not found where he was at the time of the1900 census, when his father was reported in his grandfather's home.Nor have I found his father in 1910.
