1895 Iowa Census - David W Emery

Here is the 1895 Iowa Census (a very poor quality microfilm) for my great great great grandparents, Sarah (Dwire) and David W Emery.

Page 2 (below) lists their marital status, profession  and religion.

Sarah and David were living in Ottumwa, Center township, Wapello county, Iowa with their children, Fred (my great great grandfather), Bert, Clyde, Clark, Ben and Georgia.

According to this census, Bert was divorced at the time.  He married his second wife, Margaret McDowell 5 years later on April 10, 1900.  

My great great grandmother, Abigail (Williams), David's first wife, had married her second husband in July 1895 so it's possible David J Emery may have been in the process of his divorce by the time the census was taken.   It states Fred was 29 so I assume the census was taken after April 23, 1866, the date of his birthday.
