This is the growing Elijah Pickrell and Jane (Whittle) McKnew family. The two children are Alfred Rodney McKnew and Allethia Jane McKnew; the enumerator got the gender right but the middle initials and ages wrong. Allethia was born in November 1867 (thus 2 years old) and Alfred was born in February 1869 (thus 1 year old). Elijah owns real property in Tuolumne County, probably in what is now Tuttletown.
Elijah Pickrell and Jane (Whittle) McKnew are my wife's great-grandparents, through their daughter Edna Catherine McKnew (1884-1974), who married Paul Schaffner in 1906 in San Francisco.
