1900 Census--Honus Wagner

Having two sons with occupations as ball-players might make a parent wish they would grow up and get a real job (like their brothers who were barbars or laborers). However, this family was a little different. The first "ball-player" in this 1900 census enumeration was John Wagner, better known as Honus Wagner. Now if Mom had just saved a few of those baseball cards.....
You can search the the 1900 census for your own relatives and see what their occupations were.
