Children born in Allegheny City [now Pittsburgh], Allegheny Co., PA:

2.  Emma FAUST, b. 3 Mar 1873
3.  Albert William FAUST, b. 1873/4

5.  Stella FAUST, b. May 1880

There is not a perfect match among the children from census to census, which may simply be enumerator error, but additional documentation should be sought to confirm this list, especially for Ida, who does not appear, at all, in our subject's household in the 1880 census.

2.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Anna, and I really looked, including a page-by-page search ten pages in either direction from John FAUST and Joseph FISHER, in Allegheny City (Ward 4).  One problem is that this enumerator took only initials, not given names, so if the surname is mis-spelled or mis-indexed, it's extremely hard to find someone in a big city, like Allegheny.

3.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  William is living in Allegheny City with his parents (q.v.), who are listed just two pages from Annie STRAUB, who is living with Joseph & Margaret FISHER (q.v.).
