They are living next door to George's parents, Conrad & Miranda (COLE) CUPP.  It makes no sense that George, a young farm laborer, would own his own farm free and clear even his father's farm is still mortgaged.  And if George owned his own farm, his occupation would be "farmer," not "farm laborer" nor could he possible have been "out of work" for four months.  The enumerator had put a farm schedule number in column 28, then erased it and given the number to the next head-of-household.  It appears even the enumerator recognized his error, erasing the erroneous entry in column 28, but then failing to erase the erroneous entries in columns 25-27.
