DISCREPENCY - The birth years of the 3 oldest children in the 1900 census seem to be a year too late.
1910 OR CENSUS - Rebecca G. Wood (12y, b OR) enumerated with parents William N. (62y, b AR, second marriage, married 15y) and Alice M. (32y, b IA, married 15y, mother of 4 children, all living) and 3 siblings, William L. (14y, b WA), Edwin E. (13y, b OR) and Carl A. (11y, b OR)

1940 OR CENSUS - Gertrude R. Weaver (42y, b OR, divorced) enumerated as housekeeper in home of Thomas Leatherwood; with her was son Albert (16y, b OR); they lived in rural Douglas County in 1935
DISCREPENCY - Death certificate gives birth date as 3 Nov 1896 which cannot be correct as her brother Edmund was born 14 Aug 1896; tombstone and 1900 and other census suggest 1897 is the correct date.
