William and Nancy had only been married one day on the official enumeration day, so Nancy must not be William's mother.  Listed three households from our subject's parents, Peter D. & Nancy (PRICE) MYER (q.v.).  Also in Wetzel County is Clarisa J. LISTON (æ 19, b. VA), living with her parents, William LISTON (æ 54, b. VA) and Lydia (æ 36, b. VA).

Unless Ida was not born in Aug 1866 and she was not age 4 in the 1870 census, she has to be Jane's step-daughter, not her daughter.  Listed next to Jane's apparent ex-husband, Jery H. KING (æ 55, b. WV) who is married to a 29-yr-old wife and has a four-yr-old child.  Why did Jane go back to using her second husband's surname?  Was that part of the divorce settlement from KING?  It's a bit unkind to her son, Jerry, who must have had to grow up perpetually explaining why his mother wasn't "Mrs. KING."

(Calculated birthdates should always be prefaced with "ca." you can't be certain the person who calculated their age did it correctly.)

9.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).  A file there has William born in Washington Co., MD; another gives William two middle initials, both "S"; several others show children of William & Nancy to be Sanford, Thomas A., McClellan, and Virginia Bell.
