UNKNOWN-92096 and Saucier-1 appear to represent the same person because: Unknown- 92096 has given name Lydia in 1900 Census. Enumerations before and after have Amelia as wife of Joseph. "Lydia", in 1900 Census, has been married since about 1863 and has 10 living children. Amelia, in 1910 , has 10 living children. It seems likely that the given name "Lydia" in 1900 was recorded in error, or was possibly a rarely used nickname.
