CT page 40 of 56 #526 Thompson. Andrew is listed as born in July 1868, 31 years old working in woolen mill.
Elizabeth July 1868, 31 years old. They have been married for 12 years. They have had 6 children. 6 children are still living.
Daughter Elizabeth, 15 and Son Andrew, 13 both born in Austria Dec 1884 and July 1886.
Anna, 8, born in CT in July 1891, daughter; sons, John (b. July 1892, CT), 8; George (b. July 1895, CT), 4; and Eddie (b. Apr 1897, MA), 3.
Year of immigration to United States for Andrew, Elizabeth, Elizabeth and Andrew is 1889. Number of years in the United States is 11 for all. Andrew is listed as an alien.

NOTE: There is a note under Elizabeth's name that reads something like "This is sec. 2 children before marriage". It would lead me to believe that the children, Elizabeth and Andrew, were born before the marriage of the parents, Elizabeth and Andrew. That information seems to match with the immigration info that I think might belong to Elizabeth.
