Re: William and Anna Patterson Bailey

In Reply to: William and Anna Patterson Bailey by Kay Patterson of 15650

Hi ,

Cullen gave you 1910 so I won't repeat that.

William F.,a ge 56, barber, shop, born NY father born USA mother born VT

Anna, age 60, wife, laundress, laundry, born Canada both parents born USA

His age varies a lot from record to record. In 1910 he was 42, so born about 1868, in 1920 born about 1864 and in his marriage record he was 26, so born about 1874.
1900 - see below, he is listed as 35
I wonder if in census info he wanted to look closer in age to Anna?

Odd that the marriage record shows both her parents names, but only his fathers.

Anna is listed in 1900 census in Atlantic, Cass, Iowa
her age also changes from record to record
1910 she is 51, born about 1859, in 1920 she is 60 born about 1860, in marriage she is 37, born about 1863 and in 1900 she is 43, born about 1857

Anna D., age 43, milliner, single, born May 1857, Canada, father born Scotland , mother born England

one odd thing - the marriage date is June 2, 1900 and the census date s shown as June 7th and 8th so she should be married - BUT I suspect the census was actually done before those days and possibly before her marriage

William F., age 35, boarder, single, born Oct. 1864, NY father born England mother born NY

the census for him is dated June f13th - so again I suspect it was actually done earlier and just dated afterwards

I am also wondering if his age in the marriage was supposed to read 36, not 26 - I can only see the indexed entry, not the image so cannot tell

the 1895 census index shows Anna Patterson, age 37, born Canada

William F. Bailey, age 31, born NY is in Collins, Story, IA in 1895

I haven't had any luck in finding William before 1895 - no William Bailey born NY between 1850 and 1880 which was a bit of a stretch - with a father Levi

I wonder if Levi may have gone by another name?

In case you did not know - there is a brother for Anna - he is listed at Illinois deaths - William Patterson, forn March 18, 1854 Port Elgin, Canada, died June 3, 1928, Beardstown, Cass, IL
burial June 6, 1928 Frederick, Schuyler, IL
parents Robert Patterson and Margaret Killinbeck
spouse Charlotte Ann Patterson
