[Note by BJWH: On the microfilm, the year of David's birth looks more like *1829* to me, although it is not written carefully.There are frequent errors in this census in which it seems that the census taker subtracted the age from 1900,but made an error which resulted inabirth 10 years too late. Joe put question marks by questionable years in his transcription.
If he had subtracted 81 from 1900, he should have gotten *1819*, which agrees with all of the other censuses, with an article in an Ohio Co., KY newspaper ca. 1880's about the number of descendants David had, and giving his age at the time, and also with his obituary, which said, in the old manner, that he was in his 67th year, (i. e.66 years old, as a baby was in its first year during the year *before* its first birthday), when he died in 1905.If only one census indicatedthat he was born in 1819, that could be discounted as an error, but when five censuses and two other papers all indicate a 1819 birth, that seems to be pretty conclusive. Note that Mollie Frances/Florence's age is also off by 10 years.She would have been 22 in Sept., afterCensus Day, not 12, so her birth year should havebeen 1878.]
