The out-of-sequence birth year for Homer is in the typescript; whether it is also in the original bible record is unknown. Census records say that Homer was age 3 in June 1870[1] and age 13 in June 1880,[2] suggesting a birth year of 1866.

Ohio marriage records give clarity on the damaged marriage entries above:

  • "Delphini E. Julian" [i.e., Dell] m. Ida Hines on 29 Nov. 1882.[3]
  • Newell T. Julian m. "Ida E. Beavers" in 1883.[4] This connection is corroborated by Ida's death entry above.
  • Virgil S. Julian m. Julia Heinlein in 1883.[5]
  • Newell T. Julian m. "Mabelle Thrall" in 1900.[6]
  • Alma Julian m. "J. Bren Bovey" in 1901.[7] This connection is corroborated by Alma's death entry above.

From the ages at death we can infer that the obsured death records are for Rufie, Homer, and Eudora, respectively.
