(Occupation information): Herbert and Leonard both worked for the Railroad Company; and John and his son Wilbert (which was listed mistakenly as: William W. Boone, (18), both worked at the Tire Plant. (Noted): The son listed as (William W. Boone, 18) is actually John and Mary's son, Wilbert Robert Paul Boone. Sometimes if the parents weren't home "when the Census Taker Came," the Census taker would ask the eldest child or adult in the household "questions," and if the person was a non-family member, they would go by "what they thought they knew." (Also Noted): John and Mary did have a son, Loring William (who was born in 1906, and died in 1908), so perhaps whoever was giving the Census taker the family names and dates, was thinking of young deceased "Loring William," and gave the wrong name for WILBERT.
