Subject: [ROOTS-L] 1900 LINN COUNTY IOWA CENSUS - UNREADABLE
Date: Thu, 23 Aug 2007 12:48:00 EDT
If anyone has access to another site besides Ancestry could they possibly
help me with the following. The Ancestry page is basically unreadable to me.
If you find it I would appreciate you sending me a copy of the page.
Anything would be better than the one on Ancestry.
Thanks for any help on this, Gretchen
1900 United States Federal Census > Iowa > Linn > Cedar Rapids > District 88
SHEET 92 B?
PAGE 8 OF 33 ON ANCESTRY
Below is the Translation they have ALONG with my notes on each person.....
O'Hara should really be O'Hare but could be Census Taker error, not
1. O'Hara b. 1896 New York should be Mary O'Hare b. circa 1852 New York*
2, Anna Backer would be wife of James Barker (correct spelling is Barker).
3. Ella b. 1876 Wisconsin was listed as Nellie in 1880 Census
4. Catherine b. 1879 Ireland probably correct
5. Gerner b. 1882 Iowa listed Clarence in 1885 Iowa Census**
6. Mary b. 1884 not listed in 1885 Iowa but is age 24 in 1910 Census
7. James Barker b. 1869 Illinois is basically correct (grin).
* Mary is the mother of all the O'Hare children plus Anna O'Hare Barker
** Gerner later verified as Terrance (not Clarence) b. May 17, 1883
