    In 1901, James has married and he and his family are living in the household of his father and mother, and he is working on the farm his father is still working.  James and his wife Mollie have two children.  They have already suffered the loss of two children in their 7 years of marriage.

    Note here that the birth state for Hurd (Heard) is reported as Texas, in contrast to the last census, where it was Tennessee.  This birth in Texas matches the report in a Strange genealogy included below.  I have not been able to determine what period of time James and Mollie were in Texas.  By 1910 they had been married 7 years.  Hurd was born in about 1907, and two previous children had been born and died in that 7-year period.  I do not know how much of that 7 years was spent in Texas. But it appears they were back in Tennessee by about the middle of 1909, since in the April 1910 census, Dan is reported as 1 year old.
