The 1900 United States Federal Census has the same family living in Carlisle Ward 1, Cumberland Co., PA. Barnet and Fanny Karper have the following daughters,Maud E. Karper age 13 and Vernie M. Karper age 12. The census states Frances/Fanny had 6 children and only 2 were still alive by 1900 census.
