- The 1870 census had Missouri and James in Cole Camp, Benton
County MO, just after oldest son Ulissies S  was born.
Then 6 years later William W.  was born, but by
1880 both children were being raised by grandparents Ellen and
John Baker also living with daughter Parle E Baker in Henry County,
Missouri. Ulissies was listed as "crippled" in the
1880 census and a farm worker although only age 12. Later, Ulisses
is taken in by uncle John Charles Swisher for 1900 Pettis County
census, and then a Swisher cousin according to the 1920/1930

- By 1900, William  had moved out of his grandparents
home, and was boarding in the home of Mary E and Van B Hall,
in Henry County, MO. His census reports show he has some confusion
as to where his parents were born. Eventually he settles on Ohio
for his dad and Tennessee for his mom but I think he has that
confused with his grandparents Baker that raised him.

and had been married previously at age 17 [see
1910 census] , her parents were Sarah E. Higbie  and

Aileen Lois [Guldner] and Wilbur W. Swisher

Wileen Gay  and John Wesley Swisher
