Joel DRESSLER is Kate's second husband, and the three eldest children are Kate's by her first marriage, to Mr. ZELLERS by the way, we know that Alfred used the surname ZELLERS, not DRESSLER.  If Jeremiah is 10, as it says here, then he has to be a son of Mr. ZELLERS.  If he is 3 years old, as indicated by the 1880 census, then he is Joel's biological son, not his adopted son.  Catharine should be age 36, not 30.  Living three doors from Michael & Eva Maria STROUP

If Jeremiah really is 13, then he was 3, not 10, in 1870, making him Joel's son, not Mr. ZELLERS's.  The fact that Joel calls him "son" is not proof he's Joel's biological son, because I know of many cases where adopted children are not so indicated in the census.
