I'm working on filling my tree outwards...cousins etc and I've run across a person being enumerated in the Census twice before, but this one is new on me. I'm using Ancestry and working on McClellan-1695.
Per the SS Application and Claims index. for Dorothy Marian Ward (not entered yet) her parents were Ernest W War and Cora F McClellan.
The Minnesota, Births and Christening Index 1840-1980 give Cora Frances McClellan born 1 Dec 1886 in St Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota the daughter of George and Ellen.
1900 Census for New Canada, Ramsey, Minnesota has Family 174, George McClellan and his wife Ellen, 8 children including Cora age 12
1910 US Census on 4 May 1910 for District 0019, New Canada, Ramsey had George (born New York), Ellen, his wife and 9 children, including Cora age 23 and Florance age 21.
Another page of the Census taken on 25th of Apr 1910 in Ward 4, St Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota William Mankey with wife Cora, age 23 (father born in New York), son Joseph 1 year, and sister-in-law Florence McClellan, age 21.
What are the odds that these are 2 different family or that they are the same. Everything that I see points that they are the same family.
Cora apparently divorced William Manke (had 3 children), married Ernest Ward (had 4 children) he died and she married a William Grover/Gruver and then married William Schultz.
I just need another person to see if my thinking is correct.
