    Note that the 1900 census has added 16 years of marriage from thereport in 1900.  From the ages of children, the report in 1900 looksmore correct.  I see in the 1910 census, George's middle initial haschanged from B to L.  Daughter Jessie, who would be about 14 or 15, isnot listed.  She may be married.  John is now listed as Dewey.

    Terry, Maggie Dau F W 17 Single AR AR KY [sic]

    In this 1920 record, the child first reported as John is now Dewey.The enumerator has put the wrong state of birth for the mother of thechildren, somehow using Kentucky, instead of Arkansas, where MargaretCatharine was born.  There are similar errors in other families on thepage, where he has drawn down the birth state of the parent's motheror father instead of the parent here.  Jack's mother Margaret is nolonger with them, which seems to indicate she passed away sicne the1910 census.  I have not found information on her death and burial.
