I have a some what long and involved question. I'm 99% sure what I have is correct I just need comfirmation. Is Percy Williams Stetson b. 05 Jun 1884, Hanover Ma, the son of Elliot W. Stetson b. 08 Apr 1857, Hanover Ma?Elliot's name is unreadable on the 1900 census, all the other family names match including Percy. Now i need to talk about Howlands for a little bit. Percy's wife Sarah Sylvester Howland was orphened at 15, I found a Sarah S. Stetson with the same DOB as my Sarah living with Sylvester and Arabella Stetson and one other daughter. But Arabella states on the census 2 births 1 surviving child?????. Before you think I'm guessing, read on. On the 1920 census I find Sylvester Stetson living with Percy and Sarah. Sylvester is listed as head. Percy as son and Sarah as Percy's wife. Percy even lists his Farther as being born in Maine. (Sylvester was born in Maine, Elliot was not) Is there some reason they would Fudge their information on the census???????I always thought census information was pretty accurate. Guess not. Good lesson for some of you out there. Any information on Elliot or even Sylvester would be very welcome. Thanks in advance. I have to go now my brain hurts.
