    Documents
    1880 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    1880 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    Census shows Jeremiah Dunn, with his wife Elizabeth L (Moffitt), son Alva, and daughters Eva aged 3 and an Infant aged 3 days.
    1900 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    1900 US Federal Census for Pawnee Twp., Smith Co., Kansas, USA
    Census shows Jeremiah Dunn with his wife Elizabeth (Moffitt) and 5 of their 6 remaining living children Eva May, Claud, Nora, Mary Bell and Wm Seth. There is confusion about the birthplaces of the childrens’ parents - according to 1880 Census Jeremiah was born in Ohio and Elizabeth in North Carolina. So the children should all shows Ohio and North Carolina for the parents’ birthplace, but instead it shows main Maryland and North Carolina, even though Jeremiah’s line shows he was born Ohio, and one child it shows simply “US US”
