The 1920 Fed'l Census for Hamilton Twp, Gratiot Co, MI lists:
Lon (Alonzo) Scutt, age 38, b. MI father b. MI, mother b. MI
Chattie, age 36, b. MI, father b. OH, mother b. NY
Cleo, age 18, Son, b. MI
Les, age 15, Son, b. Mi
Vivian, age 13, daughter, b. MI
Wayne, age 10,son, b. MI
Wendell, age 1, son, b. MI

It also shows in Hamilton Twp, Gratiot Co, MI:
Lorenzo Scutt, age 38 (twin to Lon/Alonzo), b. MI father b. MI mother b.MI
Ida, age 38, b. MI father b. OH, mother b. NY
Wilma, age 17, daughter, b. MI
Thelma, age 16, daughter, b. MI
Lloyd, age 12, son, b. MI
Vera, age 10, daughter, b. MI
Doris, age 5, daughter, b. MI
Gerald, age 1, son b. MI
Street, Anthony, father-in-law, 74, widowed, b. OH, father b. MD, mother b. OH

I believe between this census, which shows that Ida (wife of Lorenzo Scutt) was a Street (as her father is listed with the family) and the obituary of Vera Scutt Johnson McComber (which states that Vera was the daughter of Lorenzo Scutt and Ida Mae Street)...and the fact that several family members have always told the story of the 3 Scutt brothers marrying the 3 Street sisters...with all this...I believe it is clear now about the Scutts/Streets vs. Deans.

Also note that both Alonzo and Lorenzo are listed as the same age (twins) and that their parents were listed as being born in same place. Then note that both Ida and Chattie (their wives) were born in MI and their parents were born in Oh and NY. There was 2 years between the sisters.

Now...Anthony (father of Ida and Chattie) was listed in the 1880 Census for Gratiot Co with his parents:
Street, Owen, 75, Farmer, b. NY father b. NY mother b. NY
Rebecca, age 60, b. OH, father b. OH mother b. VA
Anthony, 32, son, laborer, b. OH
Nelly J., 9, granddaughter, b. OH father b. OH, mother b. OH

Anthony Street was married 2 times. With his first wife, he had Nelly. The census lists him as being widowed or divorced.

I didn't get a chance to look at the other census today but will be going back to get more info on this family.
