    It is notable that while the names and residence of the bride's parents are shown, nothing is shown for John William LUPTON's parents.

    Lines 1-5 show the family of John LUPTON and wife, Lula DAVENPORT, included are three children. It is indicated that they rent their home and that John is illiterate and works as a farm laborer.
    US census of 1910 for NC, Chowan county, Edenton township, page 30a.

    Lines 39-46 show the household of John William LUPTON. Included are his wife, Lula DAVENPORT, four children, Lula's brother and a servant. Lula is shown to have borne six children with four surviving. The listing is unusual in that the children (while all shown with the surname of LUPTON) are not grouped together - both the brother-in-law and the servant are listed between the children. There is also a seven year gap in the ages of the two groups of children. Perhaps the second group of children are not LUPTONs but rather children of the brother-in-law (shown to be a widower). The family is shown to be renting their home and John LUPTON to be working "odd jobs". The oldest boy is working as farm labor.
