In the 1910 Census from Florida I show:
George Washington (age 76) and Nancy (age 69) (married 53 years) running a boarding house. George W. was wounded at the Battle of Olustee and on a pension from the Civil War.
Andrew J. (age 52) married to Amanda (age 46) for 19 years but showing Andrew had 10 children and Amanda had only 7 with 5 still living for both.
With them in Coconut Grove they had: Son - Walker age 27
Son - Eugene age 14
Son - Charles age 11
Daughter - Ruby age 3
Just looking at the age of Walker I would venture to say that Missouri was Andrew’s first wife.
Charles H. Perry (age 41) and Mary (age 27) married 15 years with 3 daughters
Isaac M. Perry (age 36) and Roxie B. (age 26) married 8 years with only son Roy
George L. Perry (age 47) and Mollie (age 48) married 26 years with 8 of their 9 children still living.
William Lafayette Perry (age 21) and Catherine A. (age 17) just married in 1909. These are my grandparents.
I show all these persons on the 1900 Census in Coconut Grove, FL.
I show George W. and Nancy in Sumter County GA on the 1880 Census with Andrew J. not living with them. Andrew and Amanda must have married around 1880-81. The oldest son on the census, Walker , was born somewhere around 1873 so I would guess that “Missouri” was his mother.
