1900 Sampson County Census, Piney Grove Township

1900 Sampson County, Piney Grove Division. Enumerated by David M. Kornegay on the 8th of June, 1900, Supervisor's District #3, Enumeration District #101, Sheet 7, House #113.

According to the census, James H. and Mattie B. had been married 2 years and had one child (Arthur J.) It looks as though Mattie's age had been marked out and rewritten, from 19 to 18. Mamie (f.) was incorrectly transcribed as Maurice, while Emma's spelling was listed as Emme. The 1st 6 could read and write--none were attending school.  They owned house and land free of mortgage. The farm schedule was 98.
Name Relation Birth Date Age # yrs m. Children Living
Weeks, Jas. H. head May 1851 49 2    
Mattie B. wife June 1881 19/18 2 1 1
Mamie daughter Sept 1879 20      
Bascomb son May 1883 17      
Emma daughter Jun 1885 15      
Estella daughter Sept 1889 10      
Arthur J. son May 1898 12 mo.      
Interestingly, James Henry's oldest living son, Martin Luther (b. 1876 - son of Sarah Adelaide Robinson), was living in house # 112, with wife Lilian E. (b. 1876) and son Raymond (b. 1899).  Their names have been incorrectly transcribed as Weeke.
Family records show Martin Luther's birthdate more specifically as 19 Jan 1875, and Lillie's as 26 Jan 1875. She was a Kornegay, according to family records.
Parents of Sarah Adelaide Robinson were Eveline Carroll and Isaiah Robinson.  The 1860 Census shows an Eveline married to George W. Cain,  and lists the 3 Robinson children.  I'm including this because of the coincidence of a Sarah A. Robinson of the correct age with mother Eveline.  It may not be our Sarah A., but I think it is!  So did Sarah and James H. Weeks divorce?  This still needs exploring.
