  • In the 1880 census, Mary Ann was reported as 5 years old.  Her family Bible reports her birth date as 1 August 1874.

    Birthdates of parents in this 1880 census are uncertain, because the entries are inconsistent.  For the children, most have only the individual's birth state, and no separate entry in the field for Mother or Father's state of birth.  So it seems we are to assume the states reported in their parents' individual records.

    But on others it seems the enumerator followed the common practice of drawing down the last entered state in that same column. like a ditto.  And on a couple of the parents, not all fields are fulfilled, which we usually take to mean the information was not known.

    In 1910, we find James and Mary have moved north to Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma.  This census gives us everybody's middle initial.

    Now Annie is called Mary A.  This tells us she is Mary Annie.  A family genealogy tells us this is Mary Annie Conley.  Their daughter Dora has been married since the 1910 census, buit is now reported as a widow.  Later she will be reported as Divorced, rather than Widowed.
