If this is the correct Cecilia (BROOKS) Onion, and I think that it is based on the date in both the 1880 & 1900 census records, her husband James H. Onion was about 6 years her senior, born in Maryland abt 1841. It also shows that they had children, James H (born about Aug 1864 - 1900 cenus), Sarah S. (born about 1866), and John W. (born about 1871).
James married (MRIN:4983) Cecilia BROOKS-14343, daughter of Joseph BROOKS-14340 and Keziah BISHOP-178 (MRIN:4982), about 1879 in , , MD. Cecilia was born Dec 18451 in , Baltimore, MD1.
