What I Learned Wednesday: 27 July 2011

It’s a short one this week. I am researching the family of Sarah Alice Brinlee and James Raymond Jones. Below is the family on the 1910 census.

1910 US Federal Census, Murray Twp., Coal County, Oklahoma, ED 82, p. 1B, 16 Apr 1910

Line 72 Church St. north of 8th 18 18

Jones, J. R. Head M W 33 M1 15 TX IL IL Eng Miner Coal mine W Yes 12
     Yes Yes No O F H
Allie Wife F W 33 M1 15 6 3 TX TX OH Eng None Yes Yes No
Daisy Dau F W 13 S IT IT TX Eng Musician OA Yes 24 Yes Yes Yes
Raymond Son M W 5 S OK TX TX Eng None No No No
Elsie Dau F W 4/12 S OK TX TX None
Lennie Niece F W 15 S IT IL TX Eng None Yes Yes Yes

This is a poor coal miner’s family - J. R. Jones indicates that he is currently out of work and has been so for 12 weeks.

But he is not the only one who is listed as having an occupation. Daughter Daisy, 13, is a musician. Perhaps she helped to support the family. But unfortunately she, too, has been out of work - for 24 weeks.
