24. Annie WILLINGHAM3(Alfred2Archibald1) was born 01 Aug 1874 in Washington County, Texas, USA. She married three times. First on *12 Nov 1890 to Miles NORTON, second 1899 in Waller County, Texas, USA to Bascom STOCKING, and third to Joeseph Leonard EIGEL who was born 24 Apr 1884** in Switzerland.

* This date of marriage is from the Washington County, Texas, USA website.  Other marriage dates in this family were a few days off so it is possible this is the date of the issuance of license and not the actual date of marriage.

My thoughts on this census are that Annie Stocking  is indeed Annie Willingham Stocking and she is a daughter-in-law, not a daughter.  Also that she has lied about her age or the person giving the information didn't know the right age or where Annie's parents were born.  Reason being that Mattie said she had 2 children, 2 still living. (my observation is that Annie did not know or lied about her age in all the census and didn't even know where her parents were born until 1930!)
