  4.  Sidney THOMAS, b. Aug 1880, AR

These children appear in the 1900, but not the 1880, census with our subject.  Based on the limited information from the censuses, one interpretation is that they are the illegitimate children of Parlee HARPER, adopted by our subject.

Children with Clara SLOAN? born in Caddo Twp., Clark Co., AR:
Margaret Ann "Maggie" THOMAS, b. 13 Feb 1882

Secondary sources assert that Maggie is the daughter of our subject and his second wife, Clara, but based on the 1900 census, Maggie is our subject's niece, not his daughter.

Who is Mindy?  Where was she in 1880?  Is she adopted?  If Mindy and Sidney are Martha's children, they should show their mother born in Illinois, not Arkansas.  Are Mindy and Sidney adopted?  If they were Parlee's children, then they would have to be illegitimate because Parlee married our subject under her maiden name.  Or are we incorrect about the identity of Parlee's parents and HARPER was not her maiden name?  Parlee indictes eight children living, and there are eight children listed, supporting that Mindy and Sidney are hers.  Maggie is supposed to be our subject's daughter with his second wife, Clara, but if so, why is she labeled "niece"?
