Re: Marital status in census records

My great-grandmother Louise Garnett had four daughters (one of whom was my grandmother Jane). Louise never married, but in 1930 she was listed as widowed, and age at 1st marriage was listed as 16 which was the age she had her first child Leola.

I agree with Mr. Hawkins, there was certainly a stigma or attitude towards divorce, separations, and out of wedlock births.
