Need advice. In the 1910 US census for Florida - Washington Co - Chipley - District 0121 - page 29, I can find my great grandmother Lena May Boyett as a 7 year old girl. My confusion is, she is listed as the daughter in law of the head of the household, John Harry Boyett. How can a single 7 year old be a daughter in law?
I suspect the recorder meant granddaughter, as the listing goes, John Harry Boyett, 56, head; Luela, 56, wife; John, 30, son, Martha R, 28, DIL, (John & Martha married 10 years with 4 kids,) and then 4 children; Maudie, 9, DIL; Lena, 7, DIL; Cleo, 3, DIL; and Ollie, 1, DIL. A 1 year old daughter in law?
Or, would they be step children? Of John Harry, or of John? I would assume if John and Martha R had been married 10 years and Maudie was 9, they would be the children of their marriage. But I dislike assuming,....
Am I correct in thinking these are granddaughters, and not daughter in laws?
I think granddaughters, children of John and Martha. If you look at the next census in 1920 the two youngest girls are still at home, along with three new children: Cosna, Lester and Oscar. They are all listed as sons and daughters.
The confusing part and what makes them a bit tricky to find in the 1920 census is the parents' names. In 1920 John and Martha are listed as Pearl and Rosa. However I found John's WWI draft registration and on it he lists his full name as John Elbert Pearl BOYETT and his wife's name as Martha Rosanna BOYETT. In the 1900 census John P. BOYETT and his wife "Rosa" are living with his parents in the same location as 1910.
