Birth information based on 1900 census

Crowder, Charles E Head M W 29 M2 13 Ill Ill Ill Farm Labor
----- Abbie Wife F W 29 M1 13 Ill Ill Ill none
----- Hazel E Daugh F W 11 S Ill Ill Ill none
----- Eva Daugh F W 5 S Ill Ill Ill none

Note: Abbie listed as having 2 or 3 children, 2 now living. First number appears to be a 3 with a 2 written over top (or the other way around). 1900 Census would indicate that they had a child Harry born in 1894 not listed here (and later child also named Harry).

This census appears to have many inconsistencies with the 1900 & 1920 census. First, it appears that Charles is listed as married twice (M2), however this may be just a v shaped 1. Charles & Abbie are listed as being married 13 years, however the 1900 census indicates they had been married 7 years then. Charles' age is listed as 29 in 1910 census, but is 30 and 50 in the 1900 and 1920 census.

Mary Jane Davis

Listed as Jenny Davis in the obituary abstract for son Donald.


2102. Betty Decker

Listed as 3 8/12 years in 1930 census, but enumeration date is not given. Would presume to be about March/April 1926, about 4 years before January 1930.


1811. Lyman Decker

5 children are listed in 1920 census, and there are 5 children born before 1920 accounted for. Two names do not match:

Census: Harry (age 7) and Adrian (age 3 9/12)
Reported: Rollin and Nelson

Must determine which are the correct first/middle name pairs. Elmer L. Decker was listed in census as Leslie Decker.

Obituary for Stella M. Decker lists surviving brothers as Nelson K. Decker and Rollin R. Decker (and sister Norma), and predeceased by Adrian James and sister Nedra Louise Bates + 4 other brothers.

By my count, that would be 10 children, Stella, 3 siblings who survived her (Norma, Nelson, Rollin), and 6 siblings who predeceased her (Nedra, John, Elmer, Adrian, Dale, Phillip)
