1. Since the census-taker came during the day, usually, and wrote down
what the person said, it is possible that the wife gave the interviewer the
impression that the husband lived there. Of course, seeing the woman and
kids, he could have just asked the husband's information and she gave it.
Divorce was rare, and she didn't say she was a widow...

2. Are you sure that you are looking at the right address for the family
with twins? They might have moved with a new, larger family. People moved
often, but usually in the same area.
