Should I detach?
I ran into Annie, Bessie, and Allen years ago. At first, I thought "Bessie" was a nickname for Annie. After a bit, I got them straightened out. Allen married Annie and had some children. Annie took sick and died. Bessie apparently had been helping out, and Patrick married her. They had 6 children. I didn't know about the censuses at the time, so didn't know about children.
Time passes. Someone else worked on the family and gave all but one child to Annie. Now I have the honor of deciding whether or not to detach the children from Annie on the census. The ones not living in the family at the time, I guess I can leave alone. I have detached Annie from the births of Bessie's children already.
I've wondered if they minded being cousins to their brother's and sisters.
