Marietta Lewis family - Wabash Co., IN

The widow Marietta LEWIS appears in the 1900 census of Lagro Twp., Wabash Co., IN. Marietta was my wife's maternal 2nd-great grandmother, the widow of Jacob LEWIS and the daughter of Robert and Sarah (CYROLE) COOK.

Marietta's occupation was not given, but her son Amberson, was listed as a farm laborer. Marietta stated that her father was born in North Carolina and her mother in Pennsylvania, which conflicts with data from the 1860 census, where her father was listed as being from South Carolina and her mother from Kentucky. Marietta's husband, Jacob LEWIS, had passed away on April 22, 1898 in Lancaster, Huntington Co., IN.

Listed with Marietta were her son Amberson, aged 20; Wilford, aged 17; Lawrence S., aged 15; and Everett, aged 4. Daughter Elleiny was not listed, though she should be living at that time.
