  3. [S195] 1900 United States Census, Shawnee Co., Kansas, Washington: National Archives And Records Administration, What is curious is that for the census record of 1900, Justine is listed as a widow. We know that Frank was not dead – he died in 1917, plus there is a record of him reapplying for his Civil pension in 1910, which he finally started receiving in 1912.
