Cen1900 20 June 1900  Harrison Laverne Washburn shows on the 1900 U.S. census in the household of Solomon M Washburn in Springwater, Livingston county, New York. Solomon is a 57 year old farmer, born in New York in Aug of 1842. Martha is his wife, born May of 1861 in New York. She is 39.

Cen1910 27 April 1910  Harrison Laverne Washburn appears on the 1910 census in the household of Solomon M Washburn Springwater, Livingston county, New York, Solomon appears as Solmon. He is a 65 year old fruit farmer. This is his second marriage and Martha's first. She is listed as "Havens" Washburn. She is 45 years old, has had 7 children 6 of whom are living. Children still at home are:
Rachel 24, working out as a housekeeper
LaVerne 19 (must be the child that shows as Harrison on the 1900 census) 19 years old, working as farm labor.
Orpha 17, working out as a housekeeper.4

1911  Harrison claims on the 1930 census that he was first married when 21, that would be about 1911. Gertrude says that she was first married when 17, which would be about 1918. Therefore, we conclude that Harrison was married BEFORE he married Gertrude in 1918. The child that shows on the 1920 census then is not likely the child of Gertrude as he was born about 1915. Since this child, Edson or Edison, who was born about 1916 appears on the 1930 census with a Tracy family and he is listed as "grandson" we can conclude that his mother's maiden name was Tracy.7

Marriage 3 Feb 1912  Harrison Laverne Washburn, 21 years old, married Jeanie May Tracy, who was 18 years old, 3 February 1912 in New York.8
