Shared note

In the 1880 US Federal Census for Geneva, Jennings, Indiana, 30-year-old Indiana-born farmer Jared L Thompson and his 26-year-old Indiana-born wife Laura [Childers] have in their household their Indiana-born daughters, 4-year-old Bell [Carrie Belle], 2-year-old Mattie [Martha A] and 9-month old Alpha whose age is given as one year, but whose birth date is listed as August 1879. Jared also has the column for widow checked but since a wife is listed I believe the census taker checked the wrong column.
