      ==========================
      -
      There is confusion about this family because of another family in the 1900 census.
      * There are many discrepancies between these familys:
      - Tobias' mother's name is Lucinda, not Elizabeth
      (and his father Elisha had no wife named Elizabeth)
      - Tobias' mother -- Lucinda -- is living in St. Landry parish in 1900
      - Elizabeth, the mother, can't be Ophelia's mother as her name is Angelina
      - birth dates are all different
      - children's names
      - Tobias is widowed in 1910
      - Ophelia is widowed in 1910
      -
      The failure to find two Tobias Whittingtons in 1880 or 1900 censuses seems to imply these are the same person and the 1900 census is simply very incorrect.
