Biography

Timeline

1880 Marilda is 5 years old. Her family is living in Jefferson Township, Owen County, Indiana. In addition to her parents, Solomon and Mary, the household includes her younger sisters, Isabel (3) and Amanda (infant), and her paternal grandmother, Sarah (Conder) Fiscus.[1]

1900 Marilda is listed twice the 1900 census:

  • 11 Jun: She is working as a servant in the household of Julius and Alice Kuhr in Brazil, Indiana. She is 26 years old and unmarried, which matches her information. Brazil Township is about 40 miles away from Franklin Township in Owen County. Was she live-in help??[2]
  • 19 Jun: She is also listed in her parents' household in Franklin Township, Owen County, Indiana. Did she travel back and forth for work, or had she moved back home after working in the Kuhr household? Or, are there two Marilda Fiscuses?[3]

12 March 1903 Marilda marries Thomas Edward Herrington.[4][5]

1910 Marilda[6] and Thomas are living in Jefferson Township, Owen County, Indiana. Freal[7] is 4 years old, and Thomas's mother, Martha (67), is living with them. There is also a niece -- Lydia Herrington, age 9 -- living with them.[8]

1920 Marilda[9] and Thomas are living in Jefferson Township, Owen County, Indiana with their three children: Freal (14)[10], Anita (9)[11] and Velma (6).[12]

1930 Marilda ("Rilla") and Thomas are now living in Champaign, Illinois with their three children -- Freal, Anita and Velma -- as well as their nephew Myrlen (7).[13]
