Shared note

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Lovett, Jennings, Indiana, 51-year-old farmer James L and his 48-year-old wife, Mary B Shepherd have been married 29 years. They have in their household their children 22-year-old William H, 20-year-old Anna M [Anna Mabel], 17-year-old Alta, and 16-year-old Jessie P. This census states that Mary has borne four children and four are living. This does not match with the 1880 census which lists two more children Hatty and Lochie. Everyone can read , write and speak English except Alta. Jessie is attending school.
