Need to figure out number of husbands that Annie had and how George Barshinger fits in. The following timeline and facts are available:
1879 - Annie & Nellie, twins, born
1896 - George Barshinger born. Annie/Nellie would be 17.
1899 - Annie, 20, marries Eugene Swartz.
1900 - census lists George, 3, as grandson of Wm. & Cath. Jane Figdore. Nellie, 20, also listed.
1910 - census lists George, 12, living with Wm. & Cath. Nellie, 31, also listed.
1911 - Annie, 32, divorces, presumably Eugene.
1913 - Nellie, 34, marries Harry Wallick.
1917 - George, 19, refers to Annie Gilbert Figdore & Geo. Albert Barshinger as parents in marriage application to Pauline Gaubeart, 16.
1919 - Annie, 41, marries Rudy Senft, 46.
1928 - George serves as pallbearer at Wm's funeral
1930 - Annie dies, 51.
Two possibilities are suggested:
1) George was the illegitimate son of George Albert & Annie Gilbert. George stayed with the grandparents when Annie married Eugene.
2) George was the illegitimate son of Nellie and George Albert. Note that George & Nellie lived with Wm. & Cath. for at least 13 years, possibly 16 when Nellie married.
Assuming Nellie & Annie were identical twins, there may have been confusion, perhaps purposeful, as to who the mother was.
Obit gave age at death which back calculated to birth date of 22 Jan 1879.
