Child  1. James H. Wortman b. 27 Aug 1907, d. Nov 1974

Note*   The 1870 census lists the two oldest children as John and Henry instead of Charles and Francis. The ages are correct but why the names are recorded as such is unknown. There is no other Levi and Emily Wortman but this couple so am not sure why the discrepency. The age of Emily is also wrong. Charles death records and later census records indicate he was born in Indiana. It is possible the census information was teken in abstentia by either a neighbor or relative who supplied information that was wrong. There is no census record indicating they were in Indiana at the time.
