[Notation: census taker evidently became confused as to sheet numbers. Both pages on which Eugene and Lillie appear show sheet number erasures, which is critical since Eugene is on one page and his wife on the following page. The result is that Eugene has been given another wife, Ava, and children. However, in looking at the dwelling and family numbers, Lillie and her children are in the same household as Eugene not Ava and her children.]
