I have seen this Census record, but it doesn't match up with the woman in my tree (Annie/Ellen McCauley) who married my third-cousin (George Kelley).  Annie/Ellen is consistently listed in several records as having been born in Ireland around 1900.  Also - as you can see in her attached marriage record, she definitely got married in 1925, so the 1900 birth date has to be somewhat accurate.

The James in this record is already in the US in 1900 and he is not married to Elizabeth in 1900.  In fact, the James in this record doesn't get married until the 1910s.  As such, he just isn't a good candidate for the father of Annie/Ellen McCauley in my tree.

I don't have much on the McCauley family, other than the fact that Annie (Ellen) McCauley (born in Ireland around 1900 to James McCauley and Elizabeth Cullen) married my third cousin, George Kelley on august 15, 1925:

Where did James McCauley die on March 11, 1965?

The only records on familysearch with James McCauley as the father and Elizabeth Cullen as the mother are in Massachusetts marriages (two of the McCauleys married in Boston in the 1910s).  But - if you look up this family in the Census, they came to America before 1900 (and thus would not have had Annie in Ireland in 1900).
