  7. Ida (Hauch) Patterson is shown with her parents in the 1900 US Census. Her entry shows that she has been married for 3 years and has had 1 child, still living. However, neither her husband (John Patterson) nor the child are shown here. The identity of the supposed child is unknown. The 1910 US Census shows Ida with her husband John and two children, that they have been married for 13 years (consistent with the 1900 census) and that it is the first marriage for each of them. In a separate entry in the 1900 US Census, John Patterson is shown with his parents, and that record shows that John is single. It is believed that this entry for John Patterson is in error.
