William Rampley in 1900 Census in York, Pennsylvania


This is a copy and paste job on part of the 1900 census for W. A. Rampley who appeared in several newspaper entries n the newspaper archive atGenealogyBank.

He apparently is listed as a "Carriage Builder," aged 33 years old and born in Maryland in the 1900 Census at Ancestry.com. Note that his mother is also in the household. Her census entry indicates she is born in Pennsylvania and yet William indicates his mother was born in Maryland. Obviously something is not quite correct with this enumeration. The inconsistency is minor but this should be noted when transcribing the record.
