The 1880 Census for Louisa Nason, shows her living with son James and wife Martha Nason in Limerick. She is a widow, age 71, with occupation of "doing housework."
**GEORGE O. NASON married Susan Grace (?) of Canadian/English birth abt. 1880. He is the warden of the Sharon, Mass. Almshouse/Town Farm, on 1900 & 1910 Census reports.
Here is an excerpt from The History of Town Almshouses of Massachusetts - most likely while George Nason is warden:
"SHARON. (Visited September 20, 1898.)
This almshouse was found neat and clean. It is much in need of repairs, none having been made during the year. Much labor would be saved by introducing water into the house, for, under the present conditions, all water used has to be carried in pails from the pump outside. The practice of lodging tramps in the house should be discontinued, as there is great danger of fire from this custom. There is no separation of the sexes. There are five inmates, one of whom is insane, and one idiotic. The warden receives a salary of $300."
