1900 US Census - David W Emery & Charles Emery

Here is the 1900 US census for my great great great parents, Sarah (Dwier or Dwyer) and David W Emery living with two of their children, Clyde and Ben in Ottumwa, Iowa.

The census has David's incorrect birth information, he was born September 13, 1930, not September 1870.

This was the one census that indicated Sarah and David had 11 children, 6 of which were still alive in 1900.    The book "Conrad Emery and His Descendants" written by Frederic B. Emery only listed 8 of their children.    I have figured out 10 of the 11, but haven't been able to locate the name of the 11th, unless it is a census error.

Further down the record is David and Sarah's eldest son, Charles and his wife Etta (Rowe) and their three children, Fred Clarence, Roy and Ethel Mae.    Like his father, Charles was a carpenter employed as a cabinet maker.
