StepChild How?

In the 1900 census, Tom is listed as Bob's stepchild and Bob is married to Mary. Don't assume that Tom is Mary's child and that she had a previous relationship.  Bob could have had a wife previous to Mary who was Tom's mother and that's how Tom became Bob's stepchild.

  1. I live in rural Alabama. I actually know a guy whose Brother is his Uncle. Or is his Brother his Uncle? Oh, I can't keep it straight. All to say, you can't take anything for granted.
