2.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Adam LAWVER (æ 2, b. PA) is living in Monroe Twp., Juniata Co., PA (p. 727), with his parents, Christian LAUVER (æ 31, b. PA indexed "Lawver") and Elizabeth (æ 32, b. PA), plus siblings.

3.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Can't find Christian & Elizabeth or Adam LAUVER.  Adam may be the Ben LAWVER (æ 11, b. PA) living in Monroe Twp., Juniata Co., PA (p. 448B), with Solomon & Fannie LAUVER, who did not have a son this name or age in the 1860 census (n.b., the Civil War left a great many orphans in its wake).

4.  1880 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Sada H. LAWVER (æ 1, b. PA) is living in Monroe Twp., Juniata Co., PA (p. 344C), with her parents, A.B. LAWVER (æ 21, b. PA) and Joanna (æ 18, b. PA).

Sadie has had three children and they've only been married a year.  This is not an enumerator error, because she gives the same numbers (3 and 1) in 1910.  A descendant insists she did not have a prior husband, but one way or another, she birthed and lost two children before she birthed Reuben (e.g., a set of twins that died young).  Listed next to William's brother, Samuel STRAUB.

Is she "Sarah Catharine"?  Or did the enumerator simply mistake "Sadie" for "Katie" (phonetically, there's not much difference)?

4.  1920 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #4 of 7):  Mt. Carmel Alms House Road, Shamokin Twp., Northumberland Co., PA, Roll T625_1612, p. B, SN 17B, SD 11, ED 129, enumerated 24/26 Jan 1920, official enumeration date 1 Jan 1920 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤

It seems unrealistic for there to have been a 15-year gap between the births of Reuben and Mary J.  Or did Sadie simply lose a great many children?
