Shared note

Listed as T William Ensminger on his marriage license.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Van Buren, Shelby, Indiana, 34-year-old farmer William and his 28-year-old wife Eddie M [Weaver] Ensminger have been married nine years and have no children. He owns his farm but is paying a mortgage on it.

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Van Buren, Shelby, Indiana, 44-year-old farmer William and his 38-year-old wife Eddie M [Weaver] Ensminger have been married 19 years and have one child, 9-year-old Lizzie. He owns his farm free and clear of mortgage.

In the 1930 US Federal Census for Van Buren, Shelby, Indiana, 64-year-old Indiana-born farmer William and his 57-year-old Indiana-born wife Eddie M [Weaver] Ensminger married when he was 25- and she was 18-years old. They have a grandchild, 8-year-old Indiana-born William H Ensminger, in their household on the day the census was taken. I cannot identify whose child he is, unless he is their daughter Elizabeth's child, in which case his last name would be Hennis. William owns his farm free of mortgage.
