Census Notes for Carter & Clarinda (Family)
1900 census of Morgan Co., Ky, district 6, enumerated 1 June, lists on p. 1B as family #11/12:
Stamper, Carter, 31, b. Sep 1868, Ky Ky Tenn, farmer; Clarinda, wife, 29, b. Feb 1871, married 3 years, mother of 5 children, 3 living; Sarah E., dau, 11, b. Jan 1889; Flora, dau, 7, b. Oct 1892; Carmie F., dau, 1, b. Aug 1898; Hulda J., dau, 10, b. Aug 1889; George H., father, 68, b. June 1831, Ky NC Va; Nanna, mother, 70, b. May 1830, Tenn Va Va, married 49 years, mother of 13 children, 3 living; Callahan, niece, 9, b. Oct 1890. All children born Ky Ky Ky.
Only Carmie is a joint child of Carter and Clarinda. Sarah E. is the daughter of Clarinda and her first husband Simon Link. Hulda is the daughter of Carter Stamper and his first wife Mary Perry.
Flora may be a daughter of Clarinda as well (if so, she would account for the third living child, together with Sarah and Carmie, but I do not know who her father would be, since Simon had already remarried to Belle Porter by May 1889), or she may be a daughter of Carter and Mary, although that would raise the question of why Carter would keep both Huldah and the baby Flora, but send Minnie who was one year older than Flora to be raised by Mary’s sister Huldah.
