    Aurelia Jane Adair was the sister to my Great grandfather James Robert Huston
    Adair. Much of what I have on Aurelia and Frank is from the Federal Census
    or postings of obits on the Decatur Co., IA mailing list.

    I basically have the same info that you have on Aurelia and Frank. I can
    tell you the following:

    Aurelia Jane Adair (b: Feb 1856 in Missouri (taken from 1900 U.S. Federal
    Census; d: 27 Oct 1927;m: about 1897). She was the daughter of James Barton
    ADAIR (b: Feb 1828 in Indiana (probably Franklin County); d: 7 Oct 1907 in
    Morgan Twp, Decatur Co., Iowa; buried in Shields Cmty, Decatur Co., Iowa - I
    have a copy of his death certificate) and Elizabeth Savin NEWLIN (b: 16 Aug
    1824 in Davison Co., TN; d: ? between the 1880 Federal Census and the 1900
    Census and it probably would be safe to say in Decatur Co., Iowa (although
    not proven).

    I have the following census work on Aurelia
    --1870 U.S. Federal Census Woodland Twp, Decatur Co., Iowa, p18 of Woodland
    --1880 U.S. Federal Census Woodland Twp, Decatur Co., Iowa, Stamped p255B
    (handwritten notation on the page that it is "page 6" of the township)
    --1900 U.S. Federal Census Woodland Twp, Decatur Co., Iowa, Sheet 6B. She is
    listed with Frank WOOD and Herman BRUNETTE (listed as a "boarder")

    Apparently, I have overlooked Aurelia and Frank on the 1910 Census and
    Aurelia on the 1920 Census. I will have to go back and find them. I have
    the transcriptions on these census records on my computer. I could send them
    to you if you'd like. I wasn't sure if you wanted the full details on her
    parents and siblings or not. I could send that info on to you if you want it.
