    To think I actually wondered why I could NEVER find William A. and LouiseA. Norton in the 1900 census...By doing a "soundex" on one of their children's names, and a lot of searching, I found them - a miracle! They are actually listed as "Moton" instead of "Norton". All of their name sare spelled terribly, but it's THEM, to be certain!! (See below)
