    • 1) Eliza Nicholls, widowed white female age 48, mother of 3, 3 living, born Mar 1852 in NC, parents born in NC, farmer, owns a farm, cannot read or write
      2) Granville C. Nicholls, son, single white male age 21, born Jul 1878 in NC, farm laborer, out of work 3 months
      3) Mansfield O. Nicholls, son, single white male age 19, born Jul 1876 [see note below] in NC, farm laborer, out of work 4 months

      Mansfield O. was not listed in the 1880 census with this family, or even in all of Wilkes County under any variant of his name. If his age is correct above, he would have been born after the 1880 census. However, his stated age of 19 is inconsistent with the corresponding birth month and year of Jul 1876. In the 1900 census listing, his age had been previously written and then rubbed out and "19" written in fairly clearly. This would indicate a birth year of about 1880 or 1881, rather than 1876.
