Census

Census 1881James Corson Id #23,578 (Principal) was at home on Census night 3 April 1881 at Chester; The records show Margaret Snelson, as being a widow aged 60 ... but I think this may be wrong, as she would have been 68 by my reckoning if she were born in 1813. I think this is an error in the recording of her age at the time.

Also in the household that night were Margaret Coventry (housekeeper) and Charles A. Corson (son)

For search purposes, their Id numbers are respectively as follows :- Id #11 and 23,579
