Don't bet much on the sex of the children being correct. As
I recall there were some errors between census reports, I don't
recall which right now. I was inclined to think that Horance and
Lawrence might be the same but they are two different people in the
1910 Census, for sure.
Looking at the 1910 Census you would guess it is Horence on
the bottom of 1900, and then Laura was born later after the 1910
Census, she is not at home in 1920, Married?
