This has to be enumerator error.  On several counts, Harry cannot be 12 years old:  1) Charles & Sarah were married in 1870 or 1871; 2) as age 12, he would be too old to be their son; and 3) the 1900 census shows he was born in January of 1872, which makes perfect sense.  In other words, Harry should be 8 years old here.  Listed nest to Charles's widowed mother, Elizabeth (FRITZ) STRAUB.
