      Family Notes on Marriage with Sylvanus Levin Shores: Text: The fact that Sylvanus L. SHORES does not appear in the 1900 US Census for Somerset County, MD as either Sylvanus or Levin - and his son Willie L. SHORES is listed as living with an uncle - offers circumstantial evidence that Sylvanus was dead by 1900. His spouse, Mary WEBSTER, may also have died by that date, but this possibility requires more investigation, Mary WEBSTER listed as age 17, and S.L. SHORES as age 20 in this marriage record. Both ages are probably exaggerated by at least one year. Mary listed as wife (age 21) to Sylvanus L. SHORES in 1880 US census.
