1870 Cary Fiscus is born 12 July in Spencer, Indiana to Wesley & Elizabeth (Hubbell) Fiscus.[1][4]

1880 Cary is 9 years old and is living with his parents and his eight siblings in Jefferson Township, Owen County, Indiana.[5]

1892 Leonard is born in November.[1][6]

1893 Ora is born on 28 December.[6]

1896 Roy is born in July. Presumably, Paul is born, too, but he has not shown up in any censuses yet.[6]

1898 Ray is born; although, I have a feeling that this may have been a miscalculation by the census taker, and this is actually Roy again.[7]

1899 Ervin (Irvin) is born in April.[6]

1900 Cary and Sarah are living in Jefferson Township, Owen County, Indiana. They have four children: Leonard (8), Ora M. (7), Roy A. (4) and Irvin R. (1).[6] Roy is one of the twins (the other was Paul) who Lovell states died in infancy.[1]

1904 Raymond is born on 28 February.[7][4] The family moves to Urbana, Illinois in April of this year. They moved into a house on S. Walnut Street.[8]

1906 May (Mae) is born.[7]

1920 Cary and Sarah have moved to Champaign, Illinois. They have four children -- Ray (22), Ervin ("Irbin") (20), Raymond (15) and May ("Mae") (14). There are also two roomers livings with them: Hiram Wilsey, age 60, and George Garrison, age 50.[7]

bef. 1927 May marries Harold Gauble.[3]

1929 Raymond dies on 15 October at Burnham Hospital in Champaign, Illinois.[4]

1940 Cary is 70 years old, widowed and living in Urbana, Illinois with his daughter "Mae" and her husband Harold and 13-year-old daughter Lois.[3]

Fiscus-175 and Fiscus-148 appear to represent the same person because: These appear to be the same person -- I have his wife as Sally Winklepeck. I just haven't taken the time to add in her profile yet. They also had 7 children: Leonard, Ora, Fannie, Raymond W., Paul & Roy (twins who died in infancy), Ervin and May.

Does any of this match with what you have?
