Thank you, Ann, and I have found that 1900 census too, which indicates to me that the children of Didymus & Elizabeth (Frazee) Jarrad are: Janette, Adelaide, Mary J, Ina, John C and twins James B and Leo D Jarrad.

Allen was listed in the 1870 census, but oddly, he was the "oldest" child and listed at the bottom of the list. Also, he was 15 and the at the time and the census showed Elizabeth's age to be 24... couldn't be his mother... AND, he wasn't listed in the 1860 census - only Janette. He may have been a nephew or something of Didymus. Sad that all 7 of their children died before their parents... and how hard it must have been to lose 5 of your children within a week!
