50 year old Adaline Mason can be found in the 1880 US census living in the Jefferson District of Loudoun County, VA with her 49 year old husband John William Mason, whom she had married on Oct. 15, 1851 in Loudoun County, and their children John E. (born in 1858), Temple C. (born in 1861) and Sallie (born in 1863).
The 1900 US census, which was taken shortly before Adaline Mason died, shows her husband John was born in Dec. 1831. They are listed with their son Clayton C., who was born in Sep. 1864. This census says John was a 68 year old farmer and that he and Adaline had been married for 38 years.
At the time this census was taken, Clayton and his wife Florence (born July 1868) were also living in the household with their children Paul D. (born Aug. 1888), Benny C. (born Nov. 1890), Lester R. (born Aug. 1896) and Louise (born Jan. 1899).
All of these family members were born in Virginia.
