David should be 35, not 30.  Melinda SCRUBY's maiden name was HOPKINS, so my first thought was that they were related; however, the surnames appear to be a coincided because these are two different HOPKINS families, with two different progenitors.

Florence is fibbing big time about her age, and to support her age (50, not 38), she's lied about how long she's been married (25 yrs, not 20); she's back to reality in 1910.
