I have the following information about this Fleming/Flemming family. I am having a problem with their daughter's, Isabella, daughter, Sarah Hannah Penelope Andrews.
John Fleming b: abt 1805 in Ireland married Margaret Unknown b: abt. 1806 in Ireland. They had children and probably more than I have listed, all born in Ireland except for Mary Jane Fleming:
1. John Fleming Jr., unknown birthdate

3. William Joseph Fleming, b: abt 1827, d: 1 Nov. 1864
4. Esther Jane Fleming b: Apr. 1834, d: 01 June 1909

Number 5, Isabella Fleming [MY PROBLEM STARTS HERE] b: Aug. 1839, married abt. 1866 to Henry C.or H. Andrews b: abt. 1839, d: 15 Dec. 1909. They only had two children: Sarah Hannah Penelope Andrews b: 23 Feb. 1867 and Isabella Andrews b: Mar. 1878.
This is what I have found in the census's on this family.

This is Sarah Hannah Penelope and Isabella Andrews information according to the census.

[Note: In this 1910 census Penelope has changed her name to Guardia instead of Andrews and the children are listed as Guardia also. So does this mean that Albert A Andrews is actually Albert A. Guardia and the census taker put down the wrong surname in the 1900 census OR did Albert Andrews die and the children were adopted by a Unknown Guardia?]
