[APG Public List] [APG Members] Citation Question

The easy way around this problem would be to present the evidence from each source in a separate, documented sentence, and to then have this sentence as the conclusion of these separate statements without its own separate citation.

Subject: [APG Members] Citation Question

Hi everyone. 

I think this question has been answered several times, but my searches in the archives have proven fruitless.

I am writing a proof argument. I have a single statement in my argument that references multiple sources. Here is the sentence:

  "The family appeared to live on John's family farm from near the time of their marriage on 1 September 1898 to when the family broke apart in 1916 or 1917."

This spans a 18 to 19 year period. The records that support this one sentence include federal and state census records as well as school records. These citations are not simple book or article examples. In EE, Section 2.20, Elizabeth addresses the problem as "it is best to cite each source in a separate sentence within the reference note."

Can anyone provide an example of how to handle this? It would help me craft my citation. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
