    Link to Google MapsCensus - There is also a servant in the home Georgie Inman, she's 24 and it says her job is cook. Also, seems odd James & Margaret had one child (Powell) and didn't have the next one for 12 years (Mary) there don't seem to be any children that died in between. I'm wondering if maybe Margaret was sick? Or maybe she just didn't like to cook! - 1900 - Gladeville, Wise, Virginia, USA Link to Google Earth
