Narrative:

 

William Edgar first appears on the 1900 Census in Wilkes County, North Carolina. Family Number 110 on Page 8 of District 146 shows William S Wilmoth at age 7, W, M, and Born Oct 1892.  Since his parents had stated they had been married for seven years, it appears they changed his age to cover up the fact that he was born out of wedlock.  Additionally, Ruffin’s years married was initially entered as 1x (second number unreadable) but was crossed out and replaced with a seven.  His older sister, Allie, was listed as a daughter, F, W, July 1886, Age 13, but was also listed as a servant.

 

The 1910 Census for Surry County, North Carolina shows William Edgar on Page 1, District 127 as age 18, M, W.  His older sister is married and living with her husband. Ruffin and Mildred have now been married for twenty years with Mildred having nine children.

 

Between 1910 and 1920, William Edgar moved the family to Chesterfield County, Virginia.  See the 1920 census information above.
