David King Family - Madison Co., IN

Today I sourced the data on the David King family of Madison Co., IN in the 1900 & 1910 census of Monroe Twp. David was the son of Daniel & Elizabeth (Shaw) King.

In both census David is listed as a farmer whose farm was mortgaged. In the 1900 census, wife Litha is stated as the mother of 6 children, with 4 living, and by 1910 listed on one living. The 1910 census is in error, as in the next household I found daughter Frankie and her husband David Gosnell.

David's father, Daniel, had died by 1876, so it's possible that David didn't know his family origins. In the 1900 census he stated his father was born in Maryland and his mother in Indiana. In the 1910 census he stated that his father was born in North Carolina and his mother in Virginia. Census records for Daniel King state that he was either born in Indiana or in Ohio.
