1900 Census - William Taylor Family

I'm continuing my research into the Taylor family. Now I'm looking at Census records.
Source: 1900 U.S. Census, Plain City, Weber, Utah, population schedule, Plain City Precinct, enumeration district (ED) 194, p. 8B, dwelling 160, family 163, William Taylor family; digital images, Family Search (FamilySearch.org : downloaded 1 February 2012); FHL microfilm, 1854 reels.

Interesting:
  • There is another Taylor family on this same page. I believe it to be William's father, John.
  • I believe that William and Ada's birth years are listed incorrectly. Otherwise, William would have been 12 years old when Pearl was born, and Ada would have been. Besides, their ages don't match either. I'd sooner believe that Ada was actually 27 years old in 1900.
