!NOTES:B/D -- Feb 1880 per 1880 census, which is probably accurate since info was given by parents (most likely). His D/C gives his age at death (9 Feb 1922) as 45y, 11m, 3d which calculates to 6 Mar 1876 which is way off from the 1880 census. However, it also exactly matches what he put on his World War II Draft Registration card. Therefore, that's two for 1876 only one for 1880. His tombtone has no dates at all;

* Is this him? The name is right, the age is very close. Being listed as widowed raises some questions, but his wife Nora was alive then, just not listed with him, or elsewhere in 1910 as far as could be found. Perhaps they were separated, or, more likely since he was a boarder in this home, whomever provided the information to the census taker was just wrong about it.;
