    Notes 
    • In the 1901 Census, the ages of Daniel HUBLEY's four daughters do not match the DOB's given. However, in the 1911 Census, the DOB for daughter Olive does match the age given, and that age matches up to her age in the 1901 Census. Further, the age of daughter Jennie in the 1901 Census matches the age given on her cemetery marker. So the 1901 Census appears to have the ages right, but the years wrong. [Bob H]

  • Notes 
    • In the 1881 Census of NS, Daniel HUBLEY (1843) of Milford appears with a servant, Mary GREENLOW (whom he marries on 23 Jul 1882) and her one-year old daughter, Jennie. I had previously thought that the Jennie HUBLEY, d/o Daniel who marries Willis POTTER was that daughter, Jennie GREENLOW. Now there always was a fly in that ointment; i.e., her marker says that she was born Oct 1886, the 1901 Census has her born 1883, and the 1911 Census has her born Oct 1886. To this point, I had thought that she couldn't be born in 1883 or 1886 if she appears in the 1881 census.

      What made me rethink this is that Jennie's daughter, Louise J. (POTTER) SELIG, is b. 1931 (per her marker). If that's true and if Jennie was b. 1879, then Jennie would be about 52 when Louise was born, which raises a big red flag. So, I took another look at the 1901 and 1911 Censuses.

      The 1901 Census lists the daughters of Daniel as Jennie 1883, Myrtle 1885, Cora 1887, and Olive 1889; but it gives their ages as 15, 13, 11, and 9, which does not compute. Now daughter Olive also appears in the 1911 Census, and there she is listed as b. Jul 1892, age 18, which gibes with her age in the 1901 Census. Also, daughter Jennie's marker inscription gibes with her age in the 1901 Census and DOB in the 1911 Census. So it would appear that the ages (rather than the years of birth) in the 1901 Census are correct, and that Jenny was indeed born in Oct 1885/1886. This also makes her age when daughter Louise is born something like 45, which is eminently more believable that 52.

      But if that be so, then she cannot be Jennie GREENLOW. So, I now think that the Jennie HUBLEY who marries Willis POTTER is a completely different person, i.e., Jennie HUBLEY born 19 Oct 1886, d/o Daniel and Jane (TUPPER) HUBLEY. [Bob H]
