Notes

  • In the 1870 census, when Irene is 10 years old, she is listed in thecensus as Armena.

    1870 Federal Census, Rusk County, Texas, 28 September, Precinct 5, POHenderson, page 311, Hse #456, Fam #461

    Gatlin, Edward W M 65 Head Windowed Farmer AL VA AL [b abt 1815]
    Gatlin, Arena W F 15 Dau Keeping House TX TN TN [b abt 1865, cf 1860in 1870 census]

    Gatlin, Minta W F 5 Dau TX TN TN [b abt 1875, cf Emma only 4mos old in1870]

    In 1880 Arena (Irene) is the oldest child still in the household ofher widowed father.  The ages reported here are a good example of howunfocused people were in those days on the data specifics of years andages.

    Ages of everyone here are off compared to 1870.  Edward has aged only5 years since 1860, Arena only 6.  Emma was 4 mos old in 1870, yethere is reported to be only 5 years old.  And though Edward wasalready a widower in 1870, now he has another daughter born since the1870 census, according to her age here, in about 1875.  This must meanEdward was married and widowed a second time since the 1870 census.

    Irene married Andrew Jackson Wagnon about 1888 or 1889.  From data inthe 1910 census it appears they moved to Chickasaw Nation of IndianTerritory some time after 1896, about the when Eddie was born inTexas.
