Re: 1890-1900 Montgomery Census

In Reply to: 1890-1900 Montgomery Census by Vonnie Galusha of 1108

I'm not sure there is an 1890 census for Montgomery county, since most of the 1890 census was destroyed in a fire? the 1900 Montgomery county census has been transcribed and it lists living in Clay Twp, Brookville, on Hill Street, the following:

Fitzgerald, John, 4/25 11 O/V/SC
Fitzgerald, Lyda A., wife, 9/37 0/0 P/P/P

the page layout indicates that 4/25 is april 1825 and 9/37 is september 1937? 11 is number of years that john was married? 0/0 indicates Lyda (that's the way it's spelled) had no kids or kids living.... then john born Ohio, father born Vermont?, mother born S. Carolina.... Lyda and her parents all born Pennsylvania.....

so we know they were married by 1900.... not sure that 11 years refers to this marriage... it would indicate they were married about 1889 if it does?

anyways.... looks like he must be the one who died in Brookville.... still wonder why there aren't any dates in that death index?

oh well.... hope this helps a bit....
