The names of the children have appeared differently in the census and enumeration at school. Dates varied especially at the school level. Sometimes people other than the parent would register children so multiple documents have to be considered in older records.

* Dates and Names of Jim and Lucy's children changed with the census and other documents . The added two names may be a child who died or had a name change. If a birthdate had multiple years I put it in parenthesis. There is also a Frank (male) in the Mississippi enumeration of children. Perhaps that is Francis noted as a female in a census or simply a neighbor child Jim enrolled in school with his other children.
