  • Notes 
    • The 1900 census lists Tom living as a farmer in the south part of Boone Township, Franklin Co., MO. He was renting a farm and reported that he could neither read nor write. His wife could do both. His two sons were listed as farm laborers. Mary and Effie were in school, Ada at home. Living with the family was Elizabeth West Keeney, Clarissa's sister, who later married Tom.

      The 1920 census reports that Tom's parents were born in Tennessee, but this may be incorrect.
