1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 U.S. Federal Census; Nacogdoches County Marriage Records, Volume F, 1888-1894; Texas Death Records, 1890-1976
In the 1900 census Emeline was spelt Emiline. Also in the 1900 Census, the relationship to head of household can not be determined with any certainty. H. Sharp is the head of household and Sharp is Emeline's maiden name. So it appears the couple were living with a relative of Emeline's. However, no evidence has been found to support either conclusion. There is also a difference in the name listed for their second child. In 1900, Mary is listed and in 1910 Dollie is listed. It is not known if they are the same person. Marcellus' death certificate says he was born August 31; however, the year is incomplete. Sometimes Marcellus is spelt Marcelous.
