    Notes 
    • In the 1900 census, Adolphus lists his occupation as woods laborer. In 1893 he was a mechanic. In 1910 he was a farmer in Grand Traverse Co. He also ran a store in Muskegon. On Adolphus' grave there is a small marker which has the initials "FLT". Friendship, Love, and Truth (Odd Fellows).

      The 1900 census indicates that Lydia was the mother of 4 children with only three alive in 1900. Process of elimination; James must have died before 1900. Adolphus and Lydia split up before 1920 because they are in the census in separate counties; Lydia in Grand Traverse and Adolphus in Fremont, MI. Adolphus was married again in 1920.
