Re: Margaret Emma Lucas born in Kansas
Joseph James appears in 1900 and 1910 censuses in Charles Mix County, South Dakota. 1900 census has him born May 1859 in South Dakota?(South Dakota the state did not exist in 1859). Lists hia wife as Mary born April 1855 also in South Dakota Shows them to have been married 16 years. Lists 2 daughters, Josephine and Lucy born in the 1890's in South Dakotas and Joseph's mother Sophia age 64 born Minnesota. The 1910 census has Joseph age 53 wife Julia age 55 both born South Dakota. Shows this to be Joseph's sixth marriage and Julia's third. Living next door is one Mary Niyataninwin age 56 widow born South Dakota with daughter Josephine age 20 and Lucy age 16. The ages of the 2 daughters match with James daughters of the 1900 census. It is possible that Joseph dropped Mary and married Julia. IN both censuses all named are shown as Indian.
