I believe that all of those listed in this household are family members. John & Nancy the parents and the rest, the children of the couple.
      Enumerated as the next family on this page are William & Caroline Gillen and their young son, Clinton A. William is 27, born in Ohio and working as a Farm Laborer, Caroline is 20, born in New York and Clinton A. is 7 months old born in Illinois.
      I believe, based on other evidence that William is the oldest son of John & Nancy Gillen.
