My husbands Grandfather showes up on a 1910 Census According to this he was 40 and according to the Transcriber he was born in Germany. I looked at it and I saw TexasBut the quality of his writing and the structure of his letters, it COULD have read Germany, but what it said wasTex.And his Grandfather was FORTEEN!I think the Census taker did not hear them correctly or he had imbibed in the liquor with the worm. Then to make matters worse he is listed with a Davila family and identified as a brother-in-law. Which he was, brother to the wife, but in 1921 he MARRIED a Davila from ANOTHER family.So that threw everyone off. I got a hold of my husbands Uncle and he was able to help sort things out. He remembers as a child, the census taker would come and usually they offered him refreshment. According to Tio' sometimes the census taker was rather inebreiated by the end of the block.So records sometimescan be a bit faulty. I usually go with the tombstone records butfind alot of time the families usually don't know when these folks were born nor their age either.
