Classification: Query

1. 1910 census says Maggie Cousins bore two children and two were living, Mamie Cousins was in her household with boarders/lodgers Frank King 39 b. CA, James Mulligan b. CA 34, John Norton b. CA 46, Bob Ingram b. Eng 30, Marvel Francis 24 b. USA & W C Batten 27 b. USA.
Maggie's occupation "keeper of lodging house", address 1017 1/2 4th Street, Sacramento. People also enumerated on same page residing on "KAY" Street at 405 1/2, 415 1/2 & 417 1/2. Maggie was residing 306 1/2 "K" St 1908.

I suspect from the 1911 address "The Applegate" was some type of hotel/boarding house directory address in 1911 for Maggie M Cousins was 1017 4th, Sacramento.

2. Women often told the census taker they were a widow when in fact they were divorced or no longer residing with their spouse as was the case with one of my great grandmothers ! Social stigma I suspect.

3. All I know is that Mamie Cousins was listed as Mamie Cousins according to two directory listings in Sacramento in 1915 & 1922 the year before James Cousins died in Sacramento. I tried California death records for a Mamie, father Cousins and found no recorded record on

4. I not find Nicholas White in US census records.
