    Link to Google MapsCensus - This enumeration probably erred in listing one son and two daughters - none with given names. In light of the ages shown, the logical enumeration would have been one daughter (Ada, b. 1852) and two sons (William & Horace born in 1855 and 1858). Another daughter (Catherine Frances born in December 1859) appears not to have been listed at all.
