What was his year of birth?
I see on the 1900 census he was born Feb 1888. But I've found those dates on the 1900 can be off a year.
What census records have you found him on?
Greyfox, I answered some of this in another thread
but some the info he/she is giving isn't adding up?
I think this is the Langdon ND census being referred too? But he is listed as being a lineman working for the Telephone. In all the census records it has been consistent that his father born NY & mother in Illinois.
