Making Sense of the Census (Fording the Langs, at Present)

Melinda M. Langford (b. 1871, NV, d/o Fielding & C. C. Bocker, m. Chas. Seavers), of Pocatello, Bannock, Idaho

1871, JUNE 5–BIRTH IN PANACA, NEVADA: Melinda Melvina Langford’s full birth date and place per “rough draft” pedigree (enroute to one he hopes to complete and put on-line soon), as forwarded to shb, 25 May 2006, by Melinda’s husband Charles’ relative, Brent Fielding Seavers.

1880 CENSUS–MELINDA MELVINA IS NOT WITH HER FATHER FIELDING LANGFORD, WHO LIVES ALONE, IN PACADA, NEVADA, WITH ONLY HER OLDER BROTHER, JOSEPH, IN THE HOUSEHOLD WITH HIM. SHE IS PROBABLY WITH HER MOTHER, 2ND WIFE CAROLINE CHRISTINA BOCKER, WHO IS DIVORCED FROM FIELDING AND LATER MARRIED A “NEWVILLE.” I CANNOT FIND HER IN THIS 1880 CENSUS, WHEN MELINDA WOULD HAVE BEEN NINE YEARS OLD. –shb 25 May 2006

1891, MARCH 1–MELINDA MARRIES CHARLES SEAVERS, IN POCATELLO, IDAHO. Full marriage date and place per “rough draft” pedigree (enroute to one he hopes to complete and put on-line soon), as forwarded to shb, 25 May 2006, by Brent Fielding Seavers. [Note: The 1900 Census, as transcribed below, indicates that in 1900 Charles and Melinda had been married 9 years, so fits this date–shb.]
