I have also discovered that sometimes a child is listed on a census as a child, but is actually another family member. On a 1920 census in my family someone is listed as a niece, but in the 1930 census she is listed as a daughter. She is a niece who was raised by my great grandparents. No records of an adoption either. Not much family knows much about this, but the little I have heard is because my great grandmother’s brother was divorced my great grandma raised his child as her own. I have asked who her parents were and I just hear a father’s name is “Bud”. Well, no man listed anywhere as “Bud” So I have hit a brick wall ,only knowing she was a niece raised as a daughter. Info on the niece only states she was born in Wisconsin so even wonder if she was born out of wedlock as I can’t find any WI birth records either

@Maryalice- !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

oh my!


Well, here's what we've known about my maternal great-grandmother.
She was married (supposedly with no children)
Then she RE-married and had 6 kids with that man (my great grandpa). He died by a fall at the stone quarry.
Then she RE-Remarried to a man who felt sorry for the kids. And they had one more child.

That's the story.
BUT....When great grandma came the U.S. I'm thinking there was a man and a girl with her. We never knew who that girl was.
My mom was always curious about her because HER mother would travel to visit 'someone' in northern Ohio, every once in a while. So we were wondering if this was another child of my great-grandmother's or something. The person seems mysterious.
When Mom died, I gained old love letters between Gramma and Grampa and they were written when Gramma was on one of 'those visits'. Then I discovered that one of the young women in her bridal party was from that same location. Why would someone who lived 50 miles away, back in 1927, be close enough to have in your bridal party? Hmmmm.

I found the address on googlemaps, which was soooo cool, lol. There were two significant addresses on the same street. Both of the houses have been torn down.

So anyway, was that woman a mysterious (perhaps illegitimate) relative? or just a friend from the old country? Curious.
Especially so since great grandma would have been around 30 before her 6 children were born. That's odd to me. To be married to a first husband w/o children. She was obviously proven fertile later!





Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.


And we all lived happily ever after...

That is fascinating. Can you imagine being a young widow with several children and no way to support them? I'd marry quickly too if given that chance.

I can't go back very far with things, but I at least have grandma's mom and dad and their children figured out. From the sound of it, though, they married really soon after her first husband's death. I guess they were all good friends. Great grandma was expecting a child from the first marriage when they got married. So she had several children with her first husband and 3 more with her 2nd husband, one being my grandma.

I found one I was sure was wrong, but in looking for proof I proved it right, After the oldest son got married his father got remarried to the oldest son's wife's youngest sister.

That is a good point. I sometimes have trouble figuring out who is who.

His Hers and Ours

There’s a reasonable chance that your ancestor’s family of origin was a “his, hers, and ours” family. Death of a spouse during their childbearing years was not all that unusual before 1900 and for economic or social reasons, a widow/er with children frequently chose to marry again.

That may have resulted in a family where some children were the husband’s by a first marriage, some children were the wife’s by a previous marriage, and some resulted from their marriage to each other. Sometimes records will make this clear.

Other times it will not.

Keep yourself open to this possibility.

And it’s also possible that there was a child that resulted from a relationship outside of a marriage.
