  • 1880 Federal Census, Brazos County, Texas, 8 June, District 2/16, page 14B, Hse/Fam #131

    Thomas, Ada  W M 1  Dau TX Prussia TX

    In this census, Ada is reported as only 1 year old.  But an exact birth date from family sources says she was born 28 June 1877.  That would mean she was 3 years old at the time of the census (or less than a month before her 3rd birthday).  It is hard to imagine how parents could have mistaken a 3-year-old for a 1-year old!  Or the enumerator either.

    The Texas Death Certificate provides considerable additional detail over what I had found earlier.
