Notes On The Marriage of Affie Amelia and Lemuel Belk by Glen Dowdy:

The 1910 United States Federal Census for Terrell County, Texas lists Lem S. (?) Belk, age 30 and his wife, Affie Amelia, age 27, living by themselves. The census report shows that the wife gave birth to two children and that they have two children living, howver, they do not list on this report. the age for Lem does not agree (he was born 28 March 1883). Also he lists 'Texas' as the place he was born. (He was born in Marion County, Alabama). In tahe 1910 Census, Lem Belk and his wife both are employed as an "attendant" at North Texas Hospital For the Insane, Terrell City, Kaufman County, Texas. (The information in the following paragraph mnakes me certain this is the "Lemuel Berget Belk", son of William A. Belk and Mary Matilda (Dowdy) Belk:

The WW I Draft for Lemuel Belk lists his birth date as Marcy 28, 1883 and that he is 35 years old.
