Click on the link for a PDF copy of the 1910 US Federal Census for the Willard Saxton Family.  The record states:

  • The enumeration of the family was conducted on 19 Apr 1910 by Joseph E. Wilson as part of Supervisor’s District No. Utah, Enumeration District No. 127, Sheet No. 3A, and lines 19-21
  • The family lived in a rented home at 71 Grape Street (dwelling no. 36, family no. 51) in Election District 35 of Salt Lake City Ward 3, Salt Lake County, Utah
  • Willard Saxton, the head of the family, was a 25 year old white male, in his first marriage for 3 years
  • Willard was born in Utah, his father was born in England (and spoke English), and his mother was born in Vermont
  • He spoke English, was able to read and write, and he worked as a blacksmith, although he was out of work for 9 months in 1909 and was out of work at the time of the census
  • Mary Ann Saxton, his wife, was a white female, 23 years old, in her first marriage for 3 years, and was the mother of two children but only one was still alive
  • She was born in Pennsylvania, her father was born in Wales and spoke Welsh, and her mother was born in the US
  • She spoke English, was able to read and write, and did not have an occupation
  • Their daughter was listed as Baby unnamed Saxton, a single white female, 0/12 of a year old

As fate would have it, Willard died before the next census was taken.
