Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Ray and Bertha may have lived in their own dwelling on brother Dorwin's farm, but the 1914 Kansas Census record is faded in the are where this should be noted, and it isn't clear if they are missing the information because they share the farm, or because of the fading. (I tend to lean toward the former.) [census-us-ks-1915-s1-rawlins-celia-5]
