Would like to add that poor Veroqua's name has been spelled a different way throughout her history. Here is where I have found her and how I've found her (spelling):
1880 Clay County, FL Census: "Visa"
*"Polly", Head of house, is her Mother "Mary". In all other census Mary is listed as Mary but in this one she is listed as Polly. Polly was/is a nickname for Mary. The father, William, had recently died maybe they were running from collectors? Polly/Mary's name is also transcribed wrong from original census. Her age is listed as on original census.
1900 Clay County, FL census: "Viranga" is how it's transcribed on ancestry. On the original census it is "Viroqua".
1910 Desoto County, FL census: "V.E."
*Her husband, George W., is also listed by his initials but those are completely wrong also. They are written in original census as "D.W."
1920 Desoto County, FL census: "Misa"
Original is hard to read. Could be Visa/Misa but ancestry has it transcribed as "Misa". "Visa" was a nickname of hers.
1930 Avon Park, Highlands, FL census: "Viroqua"
1948 Florida Death Index: "Viroqua"
I have ordered death certificate and shall see what that says!
