Shared note

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Washington, Shelby, Indiana, 34-year-old Indiana-born farmer Elmore [Elmer] E and his 28-year-old Indiana-born wife Mary [Gue] Lee have been married for 9 years and have had four children but only three are living. These three are 7-year-old Indiana-born Carrie L, 3-year-old Indiana-born Maude A, and 2-year-old Indiana-born Albert. None of the children have attended school in the past year. Also in this household is Elmer's 25-year-old brother Indiana-born farm laborer George F Lee. Elmer is farming acreage that he owns which has a mortgage. Elmer's father was born in Indiana and his mother in New York. Mary's father was born in Pennsylvania and her mother in Indiana.

The information in the 1910 US Federal Census for Washington, Shelby, Indiana for the Elmer Lee family is confused. 44-year-old Elmer and his 37-year-old wife Mary are listed as having only one marriage so all the children should be theirs, but 17-year-old Carrie, and 14-year-old Maudie [Maude] Lee are listed as stepdaughters and since Elmer and Mary were married in 1890 this is not possible. The rest of the children are 12-year-old Albert, 9-year-old Ethel and 6-year-old Johny. Albert, Ethel and Johny have attended school in the past year. Everyone except Johny can read and write. Elmer is doing general farming on mortgaged land.
