Nellie Amos b. 1891 in CO

My sister found an online site that says George Gates Amos was born in Banbur, South Hampton, England to John and Maria Amos.

The 1870 Census lists Emma Shockley living in Missouri with her parents H J and Loucinda Shockley

The 1880 Census lists Emma Shockley living with James and Lou Stowel in Las Animas, CO with 3 other Stowel children.  It lists Emma as daughter so I suspect that she is daughter of Lou and a previous husband named Shockley.

The 1900 Census lists George O and Emma living in La Plata, CO with their children.  It says George was born in England in November 1865 and both his parents were English.  It says he immigrated to the US in 1867 and he Married Emma in 1887.  It says Emma was born in December 1867 and that her father was from Illinois and her mother from Missouri. 

The 1910 Census lists George G and Emma A living in Trinidad, CO with their children.  It says George immigrated from England in 1870. 

The 1920 Census lists George J and Emma living in La Plata CO with their son Albert.  It says George was born in 1868 and Emma in 1870 (probably the enumerator counting age backwards and given wrong age to start)

The 1930 Census lists George G and Emma living in Durango, CO.  It says George was born in 1872 in England but his parents were from NY (Is this signs of Alzheimer's?)  It says Emma was born in 1872 in Missouri but that both her parents were from Maryland.
