  • Census, June 27, 1900, Short Mountain, Logan, Arkansas - District 61. picture

    The following Schmaltz family are members are listed on this page:
    Gabriel Smaltz, Head, Born May 1835, Age 65
    Louise E., Wife, Born Feb 1852, Age 48
    Caroline, Daughter, Born May 1877, Age 23
    Felix A., Son, Born Oct 1878, Age 21
    Frank M., Son, Born Jan 1882, Age 18
    Mary E., Daughter, Born Dec 1886, Age 13
    Adolp, Son, Born Nov 1884, Age 15
    Leo, Son, Born May 1888, Age 12
    Frances M., Daughter, Born Oct 1992, Age 8

    This is the most messed up census I found. Even with all the errors in the census data and the transcription of the data, I am
    convinced this IS the Gabriel Schmalz family. It looks like when the census taker came around somebody just made their best
    guess at birth month and year for each person in the family but were off by a year or so for most and off by about 9 years for
    Gabriel. The names also have errors indicating that whoever was giving the information to the census taker didn't even have a
    good knowledge of the family membrs names. The errors are:
    - Gobrie Smatty: I can't make out the first name but the last name looks like "Smaltz" with the l and the t crossed thus the name
    - "Caroline, Daughter" should be "Conrad, Son".
    - Felix A. should be Felix C.
    - Adolp should be Adolph
    - Mary E. should be Mary S.
    It's also interesting that Mary also shows up in the 1900 Fort Smith Census indicating she was not even living at Gabriel's
    house in 1900. I also suspect Conrad had already spread his wings and flew the coop by 1900 which would explain why
    someone who didn't know the family might have been confused about "Caroline/Conrad".
