1900 United States Federal Census

State: Georgia
County: Franklin
Township or Other Division of County: Gumlog 213 Dist.
Date: June 15, 1900

Name Relationship Gender Date of Birth Age Birthplace Occupation
John W. Randall Head M June 1856 43 Georgia Farmer
Martha J. Randall Wife F May 1857 43 Georgia
Nancy E. Randall Daughter F Mar. 1877 22 Georgia Farm Laborer

Napoleon Randall Son M Apr. 1894 6 Georgia
Leuleu Randall Daughter F 1898 1 Georgia

Note 1: According to the tombstone of Robert Thomas Randall (appearing in the census as Thomas R. Randall), he was actually born in 1888… not 1890 (as the 1900 U.S. Census indicates).
Note 2: Napoleon Randall's tombstone, his birth year was actually 1893, not 1894.
Note 3: Although incorrectly identified as his “mother”, from the Census we see that John W. Randall's Mother-in-law (Nancy E. Mitchell Thomas) was living with them in 1900… the year before her death. We also learn that Nancy Thomas could not read or write.
