GENERAL NOTES
Puzzle about Matilda. In 1900 census she states that she is divorced and Robert is not included in the record. In 1910 and 1920 she states that she is widowed. I cannot find a 1900 or 1910 census record for Robert. He was a farmer in the 1880 census. Did they give up farming and move to Rockford? Did Matilda stay on at the house after the divorce?
