Census relationships not always correct


This 1900 census image from Saranac, Clinton County, New York is for the household of Isiah (Nazaire) Drollette. The "daughter" Etta Lyman is actually Drollette's step-daughter. I did not include it in this posting, but Etta's father shows as born in somewhere other than Canada, which is where Isiah (Nazaire) was born.
Just goes to show you can't believe everything you read in the census.
Nazaire was my wife's 3rd great-grandfather
