  • Evlyn Broumley tells us that Eddie was a twin of Zeddie E.  We learn from an online tree that Eddie lived only 8 days.  Ancestry World Tree, Norris Family, http://awtc.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=*v06t4483 "Eddie Z. NORRIS was born 21 MAY 1908 in Parker Co., Texas, and died 29 MAY 1908 in Parker Co., Texas"  This genealogy names only one of the twins.  But I had noted that a child named Eddie had been recorded in the 1910 census.  This child in 1910 is actually Zeddie, the surviving twin, who is correctly recorded in the 1920 census as Zeddie E.  The 1930 census also correctly reports him as Zeddie E.  It seems obvious then that the enumerator in 1910 just misunderstood this unusual name, and wrote it as Eddie.  1910 Federal Census, Parker County, Texas, 28 April, Justice Precinct 1, District 65, page 7A, South Main St [no house address], Hse/Fam #102 Norris, Henry N Head M W 66  Married 22 yrs  IL KY AR [should be Illinois] Carpenter  Owns Home [b abt 1844] Norris, Lucindy Wife F W 41 Married 22 yrs TX IN MO [b abt 1869,  m abt 1888] Norris, Hatler Son M W 14 TX IL TX Working Out Norris, Lino Dau F W 11 TX IL TX Norris, Alpha Dau F W 7 TX IL TX Norris, Henry Son M W 4 TX IL TX Norris, Eddie [should be Zeddie] Son M W 1yr 10mos  TX IL TX Norris, Abraham Brother M W 49 Widowed  IL KY AR [should be Illinois] "Own Income"  1920 Federal Census, Parker County, Texas, 7 January, Aledo Township (Justice Precinct 7), District 76, page 3A, Hse/Fam #50 Norris, Henry N  Head  Rents M W 74  IL KY AR [b abt 1846]  Carpenter, House Norris, Lucinda  Wife F W 50 TX IN MO [b abt 1869] Norris, Henry Son M W 12 TX IL TX Norris, Zeddie Son M W 11 TX IL TX
