Note on the three Edwards children and the differences in census data two days apart. Both the Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org family summary pages for family no. 12 on 1 Jun 1880 (Gibson) includes these names: Robert E Edwards (11), b. PA, nephew; Elizabeth Edwards (13), b. PA, niece; Athalie Edwards (9), b. PA, niece, all listed after Emma Maria Gibson and before Ellen Lee. The image of the sheet for 1 Jun 1880 has Emma on line 37 and Ellen on line 38. The image of the sheet for 3 Jun 1880 has Emma on line 28 and Honora O'Toole on line 29. The Edwards children appear no where on either sheet. This is true for the images as viewed on Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org and on the original microfilm (retrieved from Archive.org). The Family Search family summary page has this note for each of the three Edwards children: "MOVED." Perhaps this came from a piece of paper in the original folio that was not photographed.9
