Henry M. Poe household - Norton Co., KS

The Henry Mills POE household appears in the 1900 census of Norton, Norton Co., KS. Henry was my maternal 3rd-great granduncle, the son of Isaac S. and Hannah (MILLS) POE.

Henry is listed as a 42 year old insurance agent, born in Indiana, and married. His father was listed as born in North Carolina and mother in Tennessee. However, no wife is listed with the household. A son, Charles R., age 11, born in Kansas, is living with him and attending school.

Nearby is the household of an Emily I. POE, divorced, aged 36, born in Kansas, who is the mother of 3 children with two living. Living with her is a daughter, Edna A., aged 12, born in Kansas.

Because they are listed nearby, it is my opinion that Henry and Emily were previously married, but more research will need to be done to confirm. By the 1910 census, Henry was living with his widowed mother, and Emily had moved to another county.
