Title: 1900 U.S. Federal Census
Note: N449 Per the 1870 Federal Census, I believe Sarah Ohr Follett’s father was named Elias. Note that census errors in 1860 incorrectly entered the family surname as Marsh. The data in the 1870 through 1900 censuses appears to be more reliable as to names and ages of household members.
See the 1860, 1870, 1880 and 1900 US Federal census data.
Nov. 2014 - Further info on this family is from DNA match Robert French on ancestry.com.
