I'm trying to find out who these three are and where they come from! In 1900 they are living with a James H Kemp in Drew County, Arkansas and are listed as step-children. There is also a boarder with him named Edgar Sanders who is 22.
These kids stay with him thru thick and thin and even send post cards calling him "dad" as adults. But where did they come from?
The mother of James' first 5 kids died in 1894/1895. He remarried in1896 and had two more. She died. He married in 1900 just in time for the census and there are the Sanders kids and his 7 plus Edgar. The 1900 mom is too young to be the Sanders' kids mom (as in hers from a previous marriage).
