I found a family in the 1900 census that illustrates how one can
easily be mislead when you don't have all of the information about
My great grandmother and her husband in 1900 show up in the
Morgan census. This was the second marriage for each as both of
them had been widowed about 1895. They married each other in
1899. But, ironically, their marriages to their first spouse had both
occured in 1867. Rather than list years married as "1", they both
had years married as "33" which was 1867 to 1900!
Each had about 4 children still living with them from the previous
marriages. So, in ignorance one would believe all the children had
the same surname, when in fact 4 would have one surname
(REIMER) and 4 would have the other (STRUCK).
Where is this person that said they
have 162 ancestors in Crawford co.
With the census complete, I have all 8 sets
of GreatGrand parents plus one step GreatGrand parent
loctaed in Paradise, Hayes, Morgan and Iowa twps for
a total of 173 ancestors. No wonder this pesky
person is quiet.
Too bad Pesky I got ya beat.
1900 Crawford County Census Finale
WE DID IT!!!
With the completion of Denison Twp, the
entire 1900 Crawford co Census is now complete and
A little history for you folks that recently
subscribed to Crawford mail.
I first ordered the 1900 census microfilm in early Dec
1999. After sending my check to the wrong address etc.,
I finally received it during the early part of Feb 2000.
I put it aside. Then during March Joann Baird said
she would try and get it printed. To our dismay it
appeared to be a huge task. So my wife and I took it
to our local library and we did manage to get readable
material on a couple twps. It was then I found out that
this was going to be quite a task and take a certain
amount of funds and lots of computer work entering all
the data. We decided to ask for help and donations,
of which we received both. The first batch of material
went out April 07, 2000.

To our folks that did the transcribing,
donating funds and especially Bob Kuehl our assistant
and programmer who assembled all those pages.
THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!
I know I transcribed a couple of the twps and did
receive my reward of thanks, by having the support of each and
everyone, be you those that donated funds, labor and the
encouragement from you folks that click on Crawford co pages
looking for ancestors.
Then on to the unreadable data or some questions
about names, dates etc entered from the material. We tried
to enter the data using guidelines set forth by others in
counties and states that transcribed a census. If there
is a typo error in question we will correct.
If there is a question about a date or spelling that we feel
are correct as read, we would request a readable copy from the
party with the question. An example of this would be the 1908
landowners. It was here that there were many names misspelled
like many German names that end in (sen) they had (son)which I
believe is Swedish. There were folks in my home neighborhood
that had their names misspelled. Several Swedish names also
Total amount of sheets printed was approximately 1100.
Total pages of census approximtely 550. Total amount of
lines or names approximately 27,500.
Material was transcribed by 8 key punchers in 5 states plus
the island of Guam. Transcribed material was e-mailed to
me and I broke it down to so many pages per and then
e-mailed to Bob, just to give you an idea of our system.
Above all if I missed anyone here I do apologize.
Then a comment to our researchers. I am sorry that the
material filmed was not in better condition so that we
could have completed a 100 per cent transcription.

I have located several ancestors and their families who lived in Crawford
County at the turn of the Century. Two individuals, Ernst Riepen and John
Berndt, were Saloon Keepers in Denison. I am looking for a book or
reference materials that might contain pictures and text of life in Denison
at this time period. Perhaps a "Centennial" issue book. Any references,
articles, stories, and photos would be greatly appreciated.
