Vince,
Doubtful that the 1888 birth was an error and she was actually born in 1878. Wildey H. & Lucinda Travis's daughter Ethel F. Travis is not with the family on the 1880 census at all. She is on the 1892 NY census as 4, the 1900 census as 12, the 1905 NY census as 17, the 1910 as 22, the 1920 as 29, and the 1940 as 52, all ages except on the 1920 census of indicating a ca. 1888 birth.

The 1920 census anomaly appears to be an enumerator error: he entered her 34 year old brother Wildey H. Travis Jr.'s age incorrectly as 32 and the 32 year old Ethel F. Travis's age incorrectly as 29. Dan


  • Unless the genealogy record for ethel is wrong; was entered incorrectly, and it was 1878, which is closer to when I think she was born :) Social Security has MY birth info wrong, BTW, and I wasn't... more
