Today I sourced the Mary Hicks household in the 1900 census of Madison Co., IN in the town of Orestes. Mary Jane King was my 2nd-great grandaunt, the daughter of Daniel and Elizabeth (Shaw) King.
Mary Jane was the widow of Leroy Young, and had apparently married to someone named Hicks between 1893 when Leroy died and the 1900 census. Mary was listed as the head of household in the 1900 census, living next door to her son Daniel Young, as well as other relatives (King, Etchison, etc.). Mary was the mother of 3 children with only 2 living by the 1900 census.
