The Names Seventeen, Eighteen, and Nineteen

Yesterday’s post on the Rosado family reminded me of a Tennessee family on the 1880 Census. The parents were Stephen and Maria Baker, ages 52 and 45, these were the three youngest kids:

  • Bully Seventeen Baker (male), age 4
  • Lady Eighteen Baker (female), age 3
  • Aurilla Nineteen Baker (female), age 0

My hunch is that they were the 17th, 18th and 19th children, though I haven’t been able to verify it yet.

Some number names from previous posts: Ten, Seven, Seven, Seven
