For today’s Census Sunday post, I would like to share the 1900 Census for Deliliah Elizabeth (McCormack) Addy and her family. At the time, her family consisted of Smith Addy her husband and her daughter, Lura and son, Robert Henry. They lived in Schenectady, New York. Smith was a machinist at the Schenectady Locomotive Works.Here is the portion of the census that we are concerned with today; They were enumerated on the 7th of June 1900. The extracted information for the household is;
name, relation, color of race, sex, date of birth, age, martial status, years married, # of children, # of children living, place of birth, place of birth father, place of birth mother, year of immigration, # of years in U.S., naturalization, occupation, attended school, read, write, speak English, own or rent, owned free or mortgage, farm or house

4. Robert Addy, Son, W, M, Mar, 1891, 9, S, New York, England, Kentucky, At School, 9 (months), Y, Y, Y
What we can learn from this census and the extracted information is;
1. Smith was born in England.
2. That Deliliah was the mother of five children but only two (Lura and Robert) survived to be recorded on this census. I posted about four of her children previously here. I think that the information given on this census for the number of children that Deliliah was the mother of is wrong. I believe that she was the mother of 6 children.
Thanks for stopping by!
