Digital Folder Number: 4218159
Reference ID: CN 8433 In the 1900 Census for Forsyth County, North Carolina (Salem - District 35), J. T. Durham, age 41 and "married 20 years" is listed with wife Mary, and children: Sallie, age 14, Chambers, age 11, Annie, age 9, Walter, age 5, and Benjamin, age 1.

In the 1910 Census for Durham County, North Carolina (Durham - District 32), Chambers C. Durham, age 21, Walter, age 16, and Annie, age19 are all living in the household of James E. Ward and wife Sallie (Durham). John T. Durham is married to a "Laura" who was married before. The oldest son is a "Doll" or "Dale", age 12, who is not a son of "Laura" since Laura and John T. had only been married for 8 years. I believe that "Doll" or "Dale" Durham, may be Benjamin Durham who was found in the 1900 Census for Forsyth with J. T. Durham and wife Mary. More research is needed.

Occupation at death: Cotton Mill Worker
