Also in the household is Ernest's sister-in-law Eva M. Witt (25). Note: The parents of Eva and Lillian are James E. and Fannie Witt of Bedford Co., VA. It appears that Eva is actually born ca 1875 in that the 1880 census has her as 5 years old not to mention the 1900 census has her born in June 1878 ... perhaps she was sensitive to being 35 years old and single.
