    It is reported that Frances has borne 4 children and all of them areliving.  The name of the fourth one appears to be Desiax, but iswritten Dessix in the 1910 census, and Dessie in 1900.  It is Desiaxon his WWI registration card, both in the name and in his signature.Some genealogies have perceived the name as Dorsey or Dorsie (probablyfrom the way it is written in the 1900 census, where it appears to beDessie).

    The marriage report is different from 1900 to 1910.  Their first childHerman was reported born in August 1885 and they were reported marriedfor 16 years, making it about 1884 when they married.  In 1910,however, they are reported married for 23 years, making it about 1887,the year Herman was reported born.  This is another example among somany of how unfocused they were in that era on exact years and datesand details which consume the late 20th and early 21st centuryinformation age.
