Also in this household are two Missouri-born granddaughters, 12-year-old Pearl M and 8-year-old Addie M, whose last name is recorded as Fulton. This is incorrect as they are the children of Thomas and Mahulda's daughter, Mary Elizabeth Fulton Pittman per note on the census on Ancestry.com by a descendent. Thomas is farming rented land. Everyone can read, write and speak English [sic]. Everyone's parents were born in Illinois.
